The Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) would like to invite you to this year’s Pride March. This year’s event is planned to take place on Saturday 22nd June 2013, gathering at 10:30am in Great Siege Square, 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 persons and their integral role in the societies where they live.
Clearly, despite increased awareness, contempt, derision and discrimination continue to be an everyday part of the lives of LGBT people in family life, employment, education and in the provision of goods and services, all because of who we love. As stated so eloquently by the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, ‘for generations LGBT people have been made to feel anything but free and equal. For far too long, their suffering was met with silence in the halls of power’. Love is Love is a celebration of our identities and relationships and our claim to the promise, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, of a world in which all persons, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity enjoy the protection and recognition they deserve.
This is the tenth 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.
