'Anti-gay' laws in Lithuania are on hold until that country's parliament reconvenes after the summer break.

Lithuanian politicians postponed their final vote on a bill establishing fines for "public family defilement," a measure similar to Russia's 'anti-gay' propaganda law.

39 Lithuanian MPs voted to remove the bill from the parliamentary agenda while 34 MPs voted to retain it, and 20 MPs abstained, leaving the proposed legislation in limbo.
