Lithuanian Gay League criticises national broadcasters’ restrictions on gay pride clips

The Lithuanian Gay League (LGL) has appealed to the Inspector of Journalists’ Ethics against the Lithuanian National Radio and Television’s (LRT) decision to impose restrictions on advertising clips for a planned gay pride parade in Vilnius.

LGL representative Tomas Vytautas Raskevičius told BNS that the LRT wants a clip to be broadcast with the ‘S’ symbol, used in Lithuania to indicate adult content, and furthermore broadcast the clip only after 11pm.
