The Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) would like to invite you/your organisation to the annual Pride March. This year’s event is planned to take place on Saturday 17th July 2010, gathering at 10:30am at City Gate, Valletta.

Pride is a symbolic manifestation which is held in many different cities around the world. It aims to increase the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons and their integral role in the societies where they live. While it is possible in Malta to March peacefully this does not mean that homophobia and transphobia are no longer present in our society, or that harassment and discrimination no longer affect the lives of the LGBT community.

Rights Now! - the theme for this year’s Pride Week is a demand for the enactment of legislation to enshrine into existing law the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. It reflects our call to politicians to move beyond words of support and understanding regarding the need for equality, solidarity and acceptance and to progress to concrete actions that will make a difference to the quality of our lives and those of our families.

This is the seventh consecutive year that this event is being organised and your participation is a clear sign of your commitment to respect for diversity and equality in Maltese society and around the world.
