EuroPride Valletta 2023

Situated at the juncture of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, Malta has consistently drawn individuals from a spectrum of cultures, ideologies, and faiths. The historical trajectory of Malta serves as a testament to the integration of diversity within the local populace, and the global recognition for the strides taken towards LGBTIQ+ equality is a testament to this fact. Since 2015, Malta has consistently secured the top position on ILGA-Europe’s Rainbow Map Index, underscoring its unwavering commitment to these principles. Valletta’s cultural character as well as Malta’s strategic geographical position and rich history served as the perfect venue to ignite discussions that extend beyond the realm of LGBTIQ+ equality solely within Europe.

Pride Week presented an extensively diverse range of entertaining engagements and happenings, organised by ARC – Allied Rainbow Communities, non-governmental organizations, individuals, and affiliated groups, in collaboration to ensure the visibility of various minority groups.
