The same-sex registered-partnership law that passed Liechtenstein’s Parliament in March will be subjected to a voter referendum in June.
Anti-gay forces turned in enough signatures on April 21 to mandate a vote, gay activists reported.
The tiny nation, located between Switzerland and Austria, has about 18,500 voters.
The Liechtenstein lesbian and gay organization, FLay, says it needs financial support to mount a campaign to save the law, which is scheduled to come into force in September.
Same-sex couples registered under the law would have the same rights as married people except in areas such as second-parent adoption, artificial insemination and surrogacy.
