The Baltic Pride March to demonstrate support for diversity and equality will start at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 10.

The march gathering venue is Harju Street and the march will reach Tallinn's Urban Space Street Festival on Ravala Avenue, behind Solaris Center. After the march a concert and picnic with the community will take place in the festival area.
