Same sex activity, which was illegal in the Soviet Union, was legalised in Lithuania as a requirement for acceptance into the Europeane Union. Discrimination is also banned in the area of employment. The age of consent was equalised in 2004 (at 14 years of age). Homosexuals are not banned from serving in the military. While there is no law against homosexuals there is no legal recognition of same-sex couples.

There is only a small gay scene in Vilnius. Elsewhere in Lithuania, however, the sparse population means there is no gay scene. A European Union member poll showed Lithuania at 17% support for gay marriage. Most people in Lithuania strongly disprove of homosexual relationships. [1]. Not to be confused with Vilnius city municipality. ...
