Malta is considered one of the most LGBT-friendly countries in the European Union, although this was not always the case.
A few years ago, some LGBT people started to hide their concerns, fears and needs from those around them.
This is why Allied Rainbow Communities has created a documentary produced by LovinMalta, showing moments, people and events that have led us to legal and effective equality of rights. But this does not mean that there is not still a long way to go.
Check the following trailer of the Equality From The Heart programme where some members of the queer community, such as Clayton Mercieca, Charles and Ron, tell their good moments and also the ones in which they have suffered the most.
This documentary shows how difficult it was to belong to the gay community during the 70s and 80s, in a very Roman Catholic country that was facing the HIV pandemic and the gay stigma that came with it. A challenge that has returned in these days.
Whetever, If you want to know more about Malta's LGBT history and the important role that society has played, this LovinMalta production is not to be definitely missed.
