The discussion will take place Friday, September 12, 2014, from 17:00 to 18:00 in the Senate Hall (Senato salė) of Vilnius University, at Universiteto g. 3.
We invite you to join us a for a discussion with Stuart Milk, global LGBT human rights activist, political speaker, and co-founder of the Harvey Milk Foundation in the United States.
As they make progress in the defense of human rights along their continued path of full transatlantic integration and democratic reforms, the Central and Eastern European members of the European Union stand in stark contrast to those nations of the post-Soviet space that are moving backward to semi-authoritarian systems and are thus becoming increasingly vulnerable to Moscow's social and political influence.
Our discussion will review examples of successful post-communist transition and examine the current and future challenges facing the entire region in the promotion of human rights, particularly in regards to the inclusivity of LGBT communities.
Event organizers: the Harvey Milk Foundation, the Tolerant Youth Association, the Embassy of the United States of America in Lithuania, the National Democratic Institute, and The House of Diversity and Education, Vilnius.
