Baltic Pride March 2016 in Vilnius


 The Baltic Pride 2016 March for Equality on the central avenue in the downtown of Vilnius will take 
place on June 18th, 2016 (Saturday) on the Gediminas Avenue. The march will culminate in a gathering
of the LGBT* community in the public park of the BernardineGarden, located in the historic Old Town of
the city. The march and the gathering will take place between 12 PM and 6 PM, more than 1000 
participants are anticipated.

Baltic Pride is a joint project by the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian LGBT* organizations, seeking to 
promote openness and cooperation among the Baltic societies in challenging homo-, bi- and transphobic
attitudes. The Baltic Pride festival will be organized in Vilnius for the third time. This time the festival will
be used as a platform for challenging the discriminatory application of the “anti-gay propaganda” law and initiating the broader public discussion on legal recognition of same-sex relationships in Lithuania. The official slogan of the festival is “We are people, not propaganda!”
The Baltic Pride 2016 festival, taking place between June, 13th and June 19th, 2016 will encompass not only
 the March for Equality , but also a plethora of cultural, social and community events. On June 16th 
(Thursday) a theatrical event of Pride Voices will take place, where internationally famous members of LGBT* 
community will share their personal stories. On June 17th (Friday) the international human rights conference
on the topic of legal recognition of same-sex relationships will be organized. On June 18th (Saturday) the 
members of the LGBT* community and their
allies will participate in the March for Equality and the following gathering in the public park of the
Bernardine Garden.  In 2013 the association LGL had to defend the constitutional right to peaceful assembly 
by the local LGBT* community before the national courts. That year more than 800 members of the LGBT* 
community and their allies participated in the march, while the event was observed by more than 500 
residents of Vilnius and its guests. In 2014 the Baltic Pride festival took place in Tallinn (Estonia) and in 2015 –in Riga (Latvia). In Riga the March for Equality attracted more than 5000 participants.
