“Baltic Pride” 2016 Crowd Funding Campaign: Thank You for Support!

Thanks to your encouragement and support the Baltic Pride 2016 crowdfunding campaign, launched on March 8th, 2016, has reached a wonderful success. All collected proceeds will be dedicated to the implementation of the Baltic Pride 2016 activities. Every donation will make a difference!

We organized the crowd funding campaign in order to promote the fundraising culture among our community members and to make the organization of the future Prides more sustainable and less dependent on external funding. Even a small donation makes a big difference for us. Despite the fact that we are very actively working with the view securing some funding from international organizations, foreign embassies and local businesses, we still need some help in executing our ambitious programme.

The National LGBT* rights organization LGL would like to express its gratitude to Tomas Vytautas Raskevičius, Roberta Matusevičiūtė, Petras Nutautas, Eglė Kuktoraitė, Vladimir Simonko, Laura Sterna, Artūrs & Jānis from Latvia, Brian Sheehan, Anna K Shepherd, Antanas Jazavitas, Raimund J Kirstein, Mattias Kristoffersson, Romas Zabarauskas, LaDiva Live, Ruta Sepetys, Mindaugas Ūba, Gediminas Lesutis, David Mark Darnell, Kurt Lust from Holebihuis Vlaams-Brabant, Juris Lavrikovs, Edgaras Liberis, Nora Stein, Eglė Urbonaitė Tilindienė, Human Rights First, Monika Wienbeck, Elodie Brun, Giedrė Baranauskaitė, S.

Skopa-Slapina, Katarina Sjöström, M C Green, Laura de Bonfils, Rocca Carlo, Claudio Zisa and other anonymous donors of the crowd funding campaign.

The first ones to contribute to the “Baltic Pride” were the Lithuanian-American citizen Auris Jarašūnas and his partner Robbie Sutton. The newlyweds encouraging the guests, attending their wedding ceremony, to abandon the traditional wedding gifts and to support the association LGL instead. The marital initiative to express their support for an organization representing the interests of the Lithuanian LGBT* community was shared by the majority of the guests who attended the wedding ceremony. Total amount of EUR 1630 was donated to LGL in summer of 2015.
