We Exist: Narratives of LGBTIQ+ Migrants, Asylum Seekers & Refugees in Malta

Allied Rainbow Communities is proud to be launching its first book publication entitled "We Exist: Narratives of LGBTQ+ Migrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Malta".

This book captures #reallife accounts of 4 #nonEU #LGBTIQ people living in #Malta who have experienced discrimination, xenophobia, racism and harassment from all fronts.

This book was conceptualised after three members of ARC attended an #ERASMUS+ Training hosted by Associazione GIOSEF Torino on #Queer #Asylum Seekers, #Refugees and #Migrants. Following the training course, the members engaged with a number of #migrants themselves to understand their situation better.

The stories captured aims to give a voice to the silenced and shed some light on the daily challenges our LGBTIQ+ siblings face so that we may open up our minds and hearts.

Edited by Marthese Formosa and Carlos Severo Alves.
