Baltic Pride 2014 in Tallinn, June 2 – 8

From June 2 to 8, the Baltic Pride 2014 took place in Tallinn and Tartu in the form of a week-long festival filled with a number of events. All the workshops, performances, discussions, reading groups, exhibitions and film screenings gravitated around one main theme, STAND UP, and the slogan for the whole festival was I’ll stand up for my right to be myself, I’ll stand up for my family and friends and their right to be who they are. Each day was devoted to a specific topic: stories, health, politics, identities, standing up and out, families. The main event of the week was an open-air concert that took place on Saturday

LGL actively participated in the Baltic Pride 2014 organizing a discussion on the situation of LGBT people in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This event took place on June 5 and was supported by the Dutch Embassy in Latvia and the EEA Grants. On this occasion LGL  also presented its recently issued Baltic Pride 2013 photo album, which showcases some of the most salient moment of last year’s Baltic Pride in Vilnius.
