On May 9, the Rainbow Days 2017 billboard campaign has been displayed in the public places of Vilnius, capital of Lithuania. The campaign is organized by the National LGBT* rights organization LGL, in attempt to draw attention to discrimination against LGBT* people and encourage LGBT* people to speak up when faced with discrimination.
Posters with a slogan “Discrimination Hurts”, displayed in the public transport pavilions are encouraging people to report any cases of discrimination to the Office of Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson of the Republic of Lithuania.
The Rainbow Days 2017 posters include a photograph of the members of the local LGBT* community members of varying ages, genders and identities. The author of the photographs is Augustas Didžgalvis.
The posters of the billboard campaign will be displayed in the public transport pavilions in Vilnius until May 16, 2017. The Rainbow Days 2017 posters will be displayed in Kaunas and Klaipėda from May 16 to May 23.
