LGL publishes its 2012-2013 Annual Report

LGL is happy to announce the publication of its 2012-2013 Annual Report. Those were very important years for our organization: a lot of events and initiatives were organized and implemented, giving LGL new visibility in the Lithuanian society and contributing to raising the awareness of Lithuanian citizens on issues related to LGBT rights.

Two of the greatest achievements of LGL in that period were the organization of the Rainbow Days 2012 and the Baltic Pride 2013. In both occasions our organization was able to overcome obstacles imposed on our constitutionally recognized right to peaceful assembly, ensuring its exercise not only by the LGBT community, but by Lithuanian society as a whole.

In the same period 13 projects were implemented, 15 publications issued, 3 shadow reports were sent to international human rights protection mechanisms. Meetings with various institutional personalities were successfully conducted, our web-site improved and our social media presence was constantly implemented. 68 newsletters were sent to friends and supporters all around the world.

The picture that the Report gives us is one of an organization that is moving fast, active in many sectors of the Lithuanian society, and capable of effectively exercising pressure on national and international authorities in order to see LGBT rights recognized and respected everyday more.

This publication was supported by the NGO Fund of the Lithuanian-Swiss Cooperation Programme. You can access the full text of the Report here.
