MGRM: Pride: Family Where Love Matters More
11th July, 19:00 hrs, Valletta

28.6.14 by the Malta Gay Rights Movement

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 Friday 11th July 2014, gathering at 7pm in St George’s 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, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons and is both a celebration of diversity as well as a call for recognition and respect for the dignity and rights of all.

Family: Where Love Matters More is the theme chosen for this year’s Pride Week as the LGBTI community celebrates the passing of the Civil Unions Act and the legal recognition it grants to same-sex couples and their families. 
One of the concerns raised during the debate preceding the passing of the Civil Union Act was that Rainbow Families often face stigma in society which can have an impact on their wellbeing. This Pride Week therefore seeks to raise awareness and understanding particularly with respect to the misconceptions that exist around the impact of parenting by same-sex couples.   
This year’s Pride Week is being organized jointly by MGRM, aditus, Drachma, and We Are and also enjoys the support of the Ministry for Social Dialogue, Consumer Affairs and Civil Liberties. 

Your participation would send a strong signal that all are created equal in dignity and rights and deserve equal recognition before the law.

For further information please contact MGRM on 2143 0006 or visit our website at: or email us on

Best regards,

Gabi Calleja
MGRM Coordinator
