European Parliament Rejected Lithuanian Anti-Gay Law

Written by 

The European Parliament rejected the project of a law to prohibit "public promotion of homosexual relationships" of Lithuania.

The law provided that all people "promoting" homosexuality should discharge a fine going from 580 to 2900 euros.

Since 2006, the government of Lithuania changed on several occasions the protection of the minors' law which has gradually removed the rights of gay people considering that the "propaganda of homosexuality and the bisexuality" as prejudicial for minors.

Dalia Grybauskaite, president of Lithuania, qualified it harmful for the citizens and also for the image of the country.

It is a good news that the European Parliament rejected this law for all the gays and lesbians of Lithuania considering that this law went against the Lithuanian contitution.
