Lithuania: Anti Gay Law Takes Effect Today

Written by scott on March 9th, 2010

Lithuania’s “Law on the Protection of Minors Against the Detrimental Effects of Public Information” took effect March 1. It bans information that promotes sexual relationships, “denigrates family values” or encourages a nonheterosexual concept of marriage and family.

Earlier versions of the bill specifically banned “information which agitates for homosexual, bisexual and polygamous relations.”
