Kaspars Zalitis

Kaspars Zalitis is one of Latvia’s most prominent human rights defenders. With a mantra of “Progress is Possible,” he has traveled the globe spreading a message of human rights and working to improve the situation of the LGBT people in areas where much work remains to be done. In 2012 Kaspars became a Co-Chair of the EuroPride 2015 Riga, which was the first pan-European Pride parade in the former Soviet country and became so far the most successful LGBT event in the region attracting 5000 participants to stand for human rights and equality. @KasparZ
