This year’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Week, with the theme “I am”, will take place between June 30 and July 7.

It will be celebrated with the aim of reminding everyone that despite "living their lives, being themselves and being part of society", LGBT individuals have to fight for rights that other people take for granted, such as acceptance from parents, equal treatment in employment and free healthcare.

This year's activities feature the Pride March, an LGBT Film Festival and the WomenSpace event organised by MGRM, a football tournament organised by We Are and a Pride Party being organised by Station2Station.
The Pride March will take place on Saturday, June 30.

US Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, Minister Chris Said, MP Evarist Bartolo and AD chairperson Michael Briguglio have announced that they will be joining the march.

The LGBT Film Festival features three films entitled Get Real, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Bloomington on July 2, 3 and 6, respectively. All films will be screened at St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity at 21.00h.

An event "exclusively by women for women" called WomenSpace will occur on Wednesday, July 4 at at the Tal-Ferħa Estate in Għargħur from 20.00h onwards.

A football tournament will take place on Thursday, July 5, and a Pride Party will follow on July 7 at Gianpula.
