UPDATED: The funeral will be held on Monday 7th November at Dingli Parish Church corteo leaving Mater Dei at 13.15.
We have been informed that this morning our dear friend and LGBTIQ ally, Jacqueline Azzoppardi has passed away.
Jacqueline was an ally, who was often present on media advocating for LGBTIQ rights and equality. Jacqueline used to speak openly and from the heart, recounting her personal experiences to show others that love is unconditional regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Up to the last couple of weeks Jacqueline worked hard for LGBTIQ rights, working within the ranks of FOIPN and participating in the LGBTIQ Consultative Council.

We would like to thank Jacqueline for her hard work and efforts to better the life of others and we wish to offer our deepest sympathy and solidarity to Jacqueline's family at this difficult time.
