Rainbow Days 2014: Bus Event

On May 17, the day in which IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) is celebrated worldwide, the LGL team hopped on a yellow open-deck bus and toured the streets of Vilnius demonstrating against any instance of biphobia, homophobia and transphobia.

The bus started its route at 10 am from the LGL office and drove around Vilnius for approximately three hours. With its music and the colourful flags waving from it, the bus surely brought a good vibe to the centre of Vilnius. Many people encountered on the streets smiled at us, waved their hands, even started dancing, showing their support for the LGBT* cause.

Three stops were made in key spots of the city of Vilnius: the Presidential Palace, the City Hall and the Municipality of Vilnius. At each stop LGL volunteers and friends hopped off the bus and unfolded a 100 meter long rainbow flag.
