Last week LGBT+ festival Baltic Pride took place across the Baltics and a small parade took place on the streets of Tallinn on Saturday.
Members of the Estonian LGBT Association (Eesti LGBT Ühing) introduced LGBT+ history in Estonia and took the attendees to LGBT+-friendly bars and meeting places.
Baltic Pride is an annual LGBT+ festival rotating in turn between the capitals of the Baltic states. The festival is held in support of raising issues of tolerance and the rights of the LGBT+ community and is supported by ILGA-Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association). It also stands for a free and caring society where everybody feels safe, regardless of their sexuality, gender identity, and self-expression.
Those who could not attend the parade are welcomed to watch a short video about the tour of LGBT+ history in Estonia from the Estonian LGBT Association's Facebook page.

In addition to that, MEP Marina Kaljurand (SDE) posted on her Instagram that she stands in solidarity with the Estonian LGBT Association, and thanked them for their hard work: "I wish you more success and I admire your consistency and commitment! I am certain that our cooperation will continue!"
The LGBT+ festival Baltic Pride took place across the Baltic countries from June 22 to 28.
This year, due to coronavirus restrictions, many events took place online instead of face-to-face.
