Baltic Neighbour Enacts Anti-Gay Law

Published torsdag 16 juli 2009 kl 14.17
Dalia Grybauskaite is the new President of Lithuania and meets the Swedish Prime Minister on Thursday

The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights (RFSL) has condemned Lithuania's new law which makes it illegal to promote certain sexual orientations, including homosexuality and bisexuality.

RFSL warns that the law could lead to the censorship of organizations, schools, and media, ultimately isolating homosexuals in Lithuania.

On Thursday Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt met with the new Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaité, who is visiting Sweden. This only days after a controversial law has been accepted in the Lithuanian Parliament, making it illegal to in any way promote homo- or bisexuality. The law, which was initially vetoed by the president, was carried through on Tuesday, despite protests from activists both in Lithuania and abroad.
