The National LGBT rights organization LGL, organizers of the “Baltic Pride” 2019 launched a new mobile application dedicated for the festival, which will be held in Vilnius from 4th to 9th of June. The app is designed to help festival participants learn about all the events, get to know speakers and performers, interact with other participants, discover LGBT-friendly places in Vilnius and create an individual festival schedule. To ensure that the application is inclusive to all guests, the information is available in both Lithuanian and English.
One important feature of the app is the opportunity to interact with other participants. “We want not only to provide comprehensive information, but also to encourage community members to share their experiences and pictures – after all, community engagement is one of the most important parts of the festival”, explained one of the app creators, Miglė Šarakauskaitė.
The Baltic Pride app, which will be constantly updated throughout the festival, is the best way to get the latest festival news. Users will be instantly notified about new information or any program changes. App users can even mark the most interesting events to create their own personalized schedule and make sure they don’t miss out.
