Ministry of Health seeks advice from the Lithuanian Gay League


The State Child Rights Protection and Adoption Service has received a query concerning children’s psychological health. The question was passed to the Ministry of Health, which started an investigation into the matter.

On 29 December 2011, a 53-year-old inhabitant of Vilnius Mr. V. D. turned to the State Child Rights Protection and Adoption Service, under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour, with a request to explain whether a parade of naked men during daytime would be harmful to a child's health.

Having received the request, Ms. Simona Bronušienė, Deputy Head of the State Child Rights Protection and Adoption Service, took urgent measures and addressed the Ministry of Health, requesting an answer to the query.

Mr. Arvydas Gabrilavičius, Head of the General Medical Care Unit of the Ministry of Health, started an investigation and requested the Lithuanian Gay League to give a statement on the matter.

In his response to the Ministry of Health, Mr. Vladimir Simonko, Head of the Lithuanian Gay League, highlighted that Article 8 Paragraph 1 Sub-paragraph 3 of the Law on Meetings forbids to organize meetings in which participants are naked.

“Should participants of a public event breach this norm, they would be held liable in accordance with the procedures laid down in this Law, irrespective of their sex, sexual orientation or other bases,” the response of the Lithuanian Gay League to the Ministry of Health holds.

Mr. Simonko also drew the attention of the Ministry of Health to the definition of public information that has a damaging effect on the development of children set out in Article 4 Paragraph 2 of the Law on the Protection of Minors against the Detrimental Effect of Public.

“Information on a naked person per se, on his/her physiology and body composition, irrespective of his/her sex, sexual orientation, age or other bases, is not considered to be such kind of information,” the response of the Lithuanian Gay League holds. “Only information of an erotic nature (Art 4 Para 2 Sub-para 4) or information that promotes sexual relations (Art 4 Para 2 Sub-para 15), irrespective of the sex of participants in such relations, is considered to have a detrimental effect on minors,” Mr. Simonko, Head of the Lithuanian Gay League, notes in his response.
