MaltaStar: LGBT FZL Network Condemn Homophobic Act


The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Network within the Labour Youth Forum has condemned the homophobic act of vandalism on a private property that happened last week.

The Act came to light last week when Sandro Mangion spoke about the event on his blog and reported the story.

The LGBT network has stated that besides the fact that the act of vandalism is on a person’s private property, the vandalism sent a discriminatory message that goes against the spirit of equality and respect towards all individuals, be it any sexual orientation

“As an LGBT network, we strongly believe that homophobic acts can never be excused and this is why we hope that not many incidents like these happen. We also hope that the responsible persons for this act of vandalism are caught and made to pay the price they deserve.”
