Manual of the Czech Language Queering

The language we speak and the words we use greatly influence the way we think about ourselves and the world.

We present the Manual of the Czech Language Queering, a collection of texts that deal with the topic of gender-inclusive Czech, its forms and issues related to its use in different contexts (everyday communication, translation, registers, etc.). The texts are the result of the creative work of the working group on the development of the Czech language, which was established two years ago. The aim of the group’s work was to develop new forms of non-binary Czech and to map existing ones. We now share the result.

We are publishing the individual authors’ texts of the Manual of Czech Language Queering in electronic form. They are available for download and reading on our website.

You can pick up the printed version at the launch on February, 28th at the Petrohradská Gallery (more information about the event can be found in the post here on the website). It can also be handed over or mailed by appointment. If you are interested in a copy, please email us at

For the unique visual design of the Manual we are grateful to the illustrator Eli Sočněva, for the graphics thanks to Jozef Mrva.

As this project is focused on the Czech language, the texts are available in Czech language only.

The project is realized with the support of the City of Prague, Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Municipality of Prague 7 and the State Fund for Culture.
