Why do we still need Pride in Malta? Are we there yet? Who are we leaving behind? What’s next for our communities and movement? This event aims to provide a space to LGBTIQ communities in Malta to discuss the role and relevance of Pride by presenting a history of Pride marches in Malta, reflecting on achievements and highlighting gaps for LGBTIQ people in Malta.
