“Rainbow Days” 2017: Quiz in Vilnius

On May 17th, 2017 in celebrations of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT), the National LGBT* rights organization LGL and the Office of Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson of the Republic of Lithuania invited to the “Rainbow Days” 2017 Quiz in Vilnius in a bar “Peronas”.

Who are the “famous” LGBT* people? What is the history of the LGBT* human rights movement? What is the legal reality of LGBT* people? What about LGBT* music and films? The participants of the Rainbow Days 2017 Quiz in Vilnius learned all these answers and more.

The Rainbow Days 2017 Quiz is a reminder that the LGBT* movement not only fights legal, social and cultural battles. The Quiz in Vilnius was moderated by Ugnius Antanavičius, who earned his fame for the mind bending skills together with the team “Gagarin on the Moon”.

Agneta Skardžiuvienė, the Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson, and the representatives of the Office of Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson joined the event in celebrations of the IDAHOT day. The event started with a discussion about why it is important to support LGBT* community and its members, even if you do not see yourself as a part of it.
