2018 was a year of exciting challenges and inspiring victories for the National LGBT rights organization LGL. Thanks to your encouragement and support, LGL was able to take many important steps aimed at improving the LGBT human rights situation in Lithuania.
This year, LGL has implemented a number of successful projects. The most notable of them is the “Rainbow Days” festival, which has already become a tradition and during which the first rainbow colored crossing was opened in Vilnius. Together with the Lithuanian LGBT community, we also participated in the Baltic Pride march in Riga.
This year, we have witnessed a homophobic attack motivated by hate against LGBT rights organization. However, the attack provoked only support from the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, international organizations and institutions.
We dedicated this year for preparations for the Baltic Pride 2019 festival, which will take place between 4 and 9 June, 2019. Although forces hostile to LGBT human rights strive to block the march “For Equality!” on 8 June, we can ensure you that the march will take place as planned. The Baltic Pride 2019 will enter LGBT human rights movement’s history as the most successful and ambitious LGBT community festival in independent Lithuania.
This will not be possible without your support. Therefore, we kindly invite you to consider including Baltic Pride 2019 in your festivities with a donation this holiday season. Your support will allow us to do more!
