Independent: International Day against Homophobia

LGBT Labour marked the International Day against Homophobia with a statement in which it said it would like to show its solidarity towards those, both in Malta and abroad, who have suffered homophobic attacks both of a physical and a psychological nature. LGBT Labour together with the Labour Party “unreservedly condemns these attacks and asks the authorities of Malta as well as those of other countries, especially the ones in which gay rights are trampled upon, to make a stop to these crimes as quickly as possible” it said.

It also noted “with satisfaction the fact that Labour Leader Joseph Muscat is the only political leader of the two major political parties in Malta who has taken a clear stand against homophobia and furthermore declared that people who harbour homophobic sentiments have no place in Malta’s Movement of Moderates and Progressives”.
