With the Baltic Pride March for Equality, which will take place in
Vilnius on 8 June, fast approaching,
T. Raskevičius, member of the Vilnius City Council and a human rights activist,
proposed a Council resolution welcoming the LGBT community. The resolution states that the march “holds great significance to LGBT+
people, to citizens of Vilnius, whose children and relatives belong to said
community, to citizens who support the ideas of equality, diversity and
non-discrimination”. The resolution failed to pass, even though more than half of the Council did not take part in the vote.
