Due its size and other factors, Malta has very limited exclusive LGBTQ+ spaces where the community can meet. Besides the party events that take place monthly, we believe that the community needs other opportunities where it can meet.
ARC organises a number of events throughout the year to offer an alternative scene from one which is purely clubbing. You can check any upcoming events on our www.gaymalta.com calendar.
Our events include Social Meetups, Country Walks, Film Nights, Karaoke Nights, Eurovision Nights & other events led by our volunteers.
ARC is also the coordinator and organiser of Malta Pride.
LGBTQ+ Events & News are rarely mainstreamed which makes it very difficult for the community to know what's happening around the Island and in the world. We, therefore, use a mix of media to provide information, primarily to our community and visitors. Information can take on many forms, including events, sexual health, places to visit, etc.
Our main source of information for events and Malta-based news is our online portal www.gaymalta.com.
We also use WhatsApp Broadcast Messages, Newsletters and a variety of social media and online groups.
Malta's top ranking on ILGA-Europe's Rainbow Index is a great achievement for the LGBTQ community. Legislation in Malta has been revised in such a way that protects and provides equal rights to LGBTQ+ individuals.
Notwithstanding this, our community still faces injustices on various aspects in life. This is where, as an organization, we listen to our members and lobby where pressure needs to be made.
A truly inclusive society entails having businesses, voluntary and public entities being actively involved in promoting diversity.
Our collective experience and knowledge allows us to provide advise and act as a consultative body to support you to be an LGBTQ+ Inclusive organization.
