travel diaries // vilnius _ a queer fairytale
once up on a time we went on a big journey and found a rainbow gate.
we were eating rainbows
and slept in a purple prince_ss camber while the sky was glowing in purple as well.
we met unicors and other creatures at street corners
and protested for the freedom to love whoever you want to love and to live in whatever sex / gender you want to live in together with hundreds of other people. some of them came from countries far away.
and they all lived happily queer ever after.
– the end –
unfortunately that’s not the truth for queers in lithuania — there are so many homophobic discourses & politicians & new laws taking away their rights & protection… if you want to know what is going on there check the website of the lithuanian gay league (http://www.lgl.lt/en/). lots of love, courage & hope to you, beautiful queers.
