About us

Space for queer social and cultural action.

išgirsti is a space for queer social and cultural action. Our activities encompass queer culture, archiving, psychosocial welfare. We create safe spaces for cultural and social initiatives where the community can express themselves and find their voice to speak to the society at large. We care that the queer community’s self-expression, visibility and acceptance be seen in a wider context of human rights, social justice and ecology.

išgirsti is:
~ Vilnius queer festival Kreivės
~ Lithuanian queer archive
~ Queer gallery
~ Queer library
~ Psychological support
~ Information platform
~ Queer magazine Kreivės


We launched in 2004 as In Corpore, focusing on human rights and sexuality education, developing a network of peer educators. We transformed in 2014, launching the Vilnius queer festival Kreivės. In 2015, we started išgirsti, initially as an information platform. That same year, we started an information and support group for parents and relatives of LGBTQ+ people, an initiative that developed into a stand-alone organisation in 2023, Mothers for LGBTQ+ Children. In 2020, we started the queer magazine Kreivės, launched the Lithuanian Queer Archive, and opened a physical venue for cultural-social activities in Vilnius, Naujininkai, hosting queer exhibitions, events, and psychological support. Since 2023, the išgirsti space includes a library and reading room.
