DEFINING MARRIAGE - Тhe Georgian Dream party prepared and registered a project for a constitutional amendment aimed at changing the definition of marriage in the Georgian constitution and making it gender-specific. The aforementioned definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman already exists in Georgia’s Civil Code, thus making marriage between persons of the same legal gender impossible. In addition to this initiative, several political groups expressed their wish to arrange a referendum on the same topic. LGBT organizations working in Georgia state that at the moment, marriage equality is not on the agenda of activists and the community, and that this issue is being used for political manipulations. Human rights defenders point out that due to increased levels of homophobia, the situation of LGBT persons in Georgia is deteriorating. WISG (Women's Initiatives Supporting Group) in cooperation with Beka Gabadadze and JumpStart Georgia, created a timeline of how the issue of marriage equality is used by politicians. The timeline will be regularly updated, allowing readers to follow developments as they occur and trace the thread of homophobia used as a tool for pre-election campaigns. - Тhe Georgian Dream party prepared and registered a project for a constitutional amendment aimed at changing the definition of marriage in the Georgian constitution and making it gender-specific.
