Reception at LGL office for European Pride Organisers Association

This year the Annual General Meeting of the EPOA (European Pride Organisers Association) has taken place in Vilnius on September 27until September 29. All LGL staff was very pleased to host members of this important organization that every year manages Euro Pride in a different city among the continent.

A colorful and friendly reception has been organized on Saturday 28 for our dear hosts.  Music, traditional Lithuanian snacks and wine, smiles and the kindness of all participants and LGL’s volunteers. Our chairman Vladimir Simonko took a speech welcoming the European hosts to Lithuania. Then, EPOA president Hans De Mayer also spoke and thanked us for the delightful welcome and complimented board members, staff and volunteers on their work in Lithuania.

The reception was pleasant and friendly, and it was a great occasion for everybody to meet LGBT activists from different parts of Europe, to share experience and knowledge.
