Lithuania blocks attempt at ‘gay propaganda’ ban

The Lithuanian Central Electoral Commission on Monday refused registration for a group trying to institute a Russian style ban on so-called ‘homosexual propaganda,’ – blocking them from collecting signatures for a referendum.

The commissioners ruled five against registering the group, four in favor, with two commissioners abstaining.

The move to institute a ‘homosexual propaganda’ ban is being lead by Kaunas City Council member Gintautas Labanauskas and would ban, ‘any information related with propagation of homosexuality.’
