Studies of sexualities in geography challenge some of the profound omissions of issues connected with difference as part of the human experience. Research in this field began three decades ago in the Anglo-American geographic academy and I feel that it is time we started to consider such sensitivity to difference in Czech geography as well. The cultural turn in geography and spatial turn in sociology, anthropology,gender studies and many other social or human sciences have intensified circulation of knowledge and most importantly, with respect to this article,have facilitated the production of knowledge based on the perspective of sexual difference. This paper reacts to the current state of Czech geography and aims to raise awareness of various phenomena such as heteronormativity or queer subjectivity which are yet to be understood in Czech socio-spatial contexts.
