Who is spreading LGBT+ disinformation in the Baltics?

In May 2023, the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) which collects the trends all over the EU, reported that LGBT+ issues are one of the most popular and persistent topics of disinformation. Most narratives about the traditional family, which supposedly is under attack, are also relevant in the Baltics.
