Malta Star: NCPE: LGBT persons harassed if they show affection in public
23 January 2012 14:38

The National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) condemned the violent incident that occurred a few days ago in Hamrun where a 16 year old lesbian was beaten up by three boys because she is lesbian and was with her partner.

NCPE said that a study it carried out locally shows “that being with a same-sex partner and expressing affection in public exposed respondents to unwarranted attention and harassment.”

NCPE denounced any form of discrimination, harassment or violence and calls for the respect of diversity in society at large to enhance the well-being and inclusion of everyone.
