On Tuesday, the LRT Council sent the recommendation to the administration, which had asked for advise after receiving a request from the Lithuanian Gay League to air social advertisements of the event.
Žygintas Pečiulis, chairman of the council, has suggested a somewhat different wording of the decision, namely that the LRT Council does not object to broadcasting the ads on the state-run television. However, the council has decided to go ahead with a different position.
The second rally in support of LGBT rights is scheduled for July 27.
In 2010, the first event took place in Vilnius in a secured territory away from the city center, with about 1,000 individuals protesting against the rally.
