On the evening of June 7th, the National LGBT rights organization LGL invited friends and sponsors of the “Baltic Pride 2019” to gather and celebrate diversity and equality in an exclusive “Pride Voices Gala” event held at the Lithuanian Russian Drama Theatre.
This event provided a unique opportunity to hear the stories of LGBT community members Lord Michael Cashman (United Kingdom), Jeanette Solstad Remø (Norway) and Maria Golubeva (Latvia) as well as to witness a fascinating and sophisticated performance of divas who conquered the European drag stages La Diva Live (France), Sharonne (Spain) and Catherine d’Oex (Switzerland).
At the beginning of the evening, while the red carpet of the Russian Drama Theatre was crowded with Lithuanian celebrities, a musician from Israel, DJ Daniel Mariuma, welcomed the guests of the evening with his set. His music was a unique mix of electronics, pop, RNB, disco and other genres.
Performers B & B, who had danced at the “Pride Voices” event in 2016, and always try to provoke and reflect their surroundings as well as to start a unique dialogue with the participants, became the guides of this evening, starting at the red carpet and continuing to the stage.
