Lithuanian court rules in favor of LGBT pride organizers

The Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania passed a ruling on Thursday, ordering Vilnius authorities to review their decision regarding the venue for an LGBT pride march scheduled for July.

Having heard the organizers’ appeal, the court ruled that Vilnius City Municipality had made a non-substantiated decision to move the planned event from central Gedimino Avenue, as requested by organizers, to Upės Street a little further from central Vilnius.
