Over the Past couple of days a group of over 70 LGBTIQ youths from Europe visited Malta to attend IGLYO Annual Members Conference 2016. The Annual Members Conference hosted by We Are and Gender Liberation spanned over 3 days in which activists could meet and discuss their views and expertise.
During the opening of the seminar the minister for Social Dialogue, Consumer affairs and Civil Liberties Hon Helena Dalli Parliament announced two laws that are to be enacted shortly. The two laws put forward by the LGBTI consultative council are:
1) The Ban of Conversion Practices in relation to LGBTIQ people
2) The recognition of the gender identity of persons who are not Maltese while in a gender segregated facility, as well as full depathologisation of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
In the evenings the participants were hosted by the President of Malta, MGRM and ARC for a social evening.
These are some of the pictures of the arc evening which took place in a traditional palazzo in Valletta on the night of Notte Bianca.
On behalf of the gaymalta.com we would like to thank and congratulate the hosts, organisers volunteers, benefactors and sponsors for making this event possible in Malta.
