MGRM Seminar: Life Experiences of LGBTIQ Senior Citizens

30.6.2015 by MGRM

Seminar: Life Experiences of LGBTIQ Senior Citizens
16 July 2015 – Le Meridien Hotel – 9am to 12pm

As part of an EEA/Norway NGO Grant project ‘Enhancing capacity to advocate for LGBT rights’ MGRM sought to meet with senior members of the LGBTI population in Malta to better understand their life stories.

The project aimed to help inform the movement, policy makers and service providers (both public and private) and the wider population about what it is like to be a part of Malta’s elderly LGBTI population which is often invisible.

These stories have been compiled in a publication which will be launched and distributed during the seminar.

Participation in the seminar, which is co-funded through the EEA/Norway NGO Programme is free. To register click here. Registration is open till the 13th of July 2015.
