Baltic Pride is a movement in the Baltic nations of the Baltic Sea region in Eastern Europe. Contextualizing, pride parades are also known as pride marches (also referred to as pride celebrations, gay pride parades, and gay pride events). They occur around the world on a regular basis and are organized by groups who support the rights of the gay community. They are a worldwide event that draws attention to the importance of human rights and equality.
Baltic Pride is an international organization and it was founded in 1993 in Vilnius, Lithuania, which is in the Baltic region of Europe. The movement started as a small group of people who shared common interests and were active in the local gay community. Later on, the organizers realized that the Baltic gay community was no longer restricted to the cities and towns. More than 40 cities and towns across the Baltic region have their own pride events and parades.
