Our project grew from the LGBT Friendly Vilnius initiative which made the first LGBT Friendly map in 2012. At first it caused controversy, but soon the map became a great success, and since those days Lithuanian society has become more tolerant and friendly. Growing the project, we decided it would make sense to add other Friendly categories to introduce more access, visibility and tolerance for a diverse crowd of people. We still keep the golden rule – all our venues must be committed to promote LGBT+ friendliness.
