MaltaStar: LGBT Labour expresses solidarity with victims of homophobia
17 May 2010 15:02

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) Labour joins in celbrations of the International Day against Homophobia.

LGBT Labour expressed solidarity towards those, both in Malta and abroad, who have suffered homophobic attacks both of a physical and a psychological nature.

LGBT Labour and the Labour Party unreservedly condemns these attacks and asks the Maltese authorities as well as those of other countries, especially the ones where gay rights are trampled upon, stop these crimes.

On a Local level LGBT Labour notes 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 declared that people who harbour homophobic sentiments have no place in Malta's Movement of Moderates and Progressives.

We hope that this day will serve to continue our fight against homophobia which brings nothing but hatred and anguish not only to LGBT people but also to their families, their friends and their loved ones.
