  1. I wish the Baltic Pride all the luck in the world. On holiday in Riga this year at the same time as Pride, I was heartened by the solidarity expressed by all those who took part. I didn’t intend to do anything other than watch and record, but the anger I felt at the miss information and pure bigotry of the anti-gay faction made me want to stand with my brothers and sisters. To make Baltic Pride work and ensure that rights for all of us in the EU are extended we need to book our flights and hotels now and fight where the facists are most vocal.

    If the fascists stop us in the Baltics, how long would it take for their poison to spread to other parts?

    I will be working in Riga, live blogging the Pride march as I did last year. Readers might interested in a piece I’ve written for my blog – The Baltic roots of gay rights activism – pointing out that one of the earliest and most important gay rights activists, Emma Goldman, was born in what’s now Lithuania.
