Throughout August and September 2021, Apeironas theatre in Klaipėda facilitated three events dedicated to building a local LGBTQIA+ and allies community.
The organizers used the theatre space to facilitate a discussion on LGBTQIA+ wellbeing with a mental health specialist, as well as a slam workshop on a later date. Outside of the theatre, they organized a panel discussion on LGBTQIA+ rights in Lithuania – this event attracted a wider audience and allowed for a fruitful conversation on the eve of Kaunas Pride.
These events were key to establishing ties between the local members of LGBTQIA+ community who are continuing to organize similar events following this project. In total, these events gathered around 50 participants.
