On 8th June, 2018 the representatives of the National LGBT* rights organization LGL were presented with LGBT Hero Award during an event, organized by Latvian LGBT* NGO “Mozaika” on the occasion of the “Baltic Pride 2018” festival in Riga (Latvia).
The LGBT Hero Award was given to LGL as a sign of appreciation for LGL’s support to the Latvian LGBT community. The representatives of LGL were proud to receive the award from their “Baltic Pride” partners.
“I am pleased that the Baltic Pride festivals in the Baltic capitals are becoming a city holiday. I am glad that succeed to create a miracle of being together and in sending out a very clear message that democracy, tolerance and respect for every person – despite individual differences – are precisely the values that our societies are guided by,” commented Vladimir Simonko, Executive Director of the National LGBT* Rights Organization LGL.
