For the Sake of the Kids, Lithuania Bans ‘Propaganda of Homosexuality, Bisexuality’

Sixty-seven of Lithuania’s 74 parliamentarians yesterday voted to ban any “propaganda” that portrays GLBTs in any positive light. Naturally, the new legislation is aimed at protecting minors. The Law on the Protection of Minors against the Detrimental Effect of Public Information not only threatens the legality of any gay-related books and movies but also puts gays in the same category as the illegal “display of dead or cruelly mutilated body, information that causes fear or horror or encourages suicide.” [UK Gay News]
