Baltic Pride was not as big as usual this year, but included a small march in the Estonian capital.

Baltic Pride is an annual LGBT+ festival rotating among the three Baltic capitals. Estonia's Tallinn hosted this year's celebrations, which had to be scaled down and and most events moved online due to the coronavirus.

A small pride parade took place on Saturday, according to Estonia's public broadcaster ERR. It was attended by several dozen people.

Photos from the event are available on ERR website.

Baltic Pride was organised by the Estonian LGBT Association (Eesti LGBT Ühing), which focused this year on LGBT+ history in Estonia and took attendees to LGBT-friendly bars and meeting places.

Originally planned for June 1–7, Baltic pride was postponed to June 22–28.

Vilnius hosted Baltic Pride in 2019. The March for Equality attracted a record-number of people, around 10,000.

Next year, the festival will take place in Riga.
