On Saturday 30 May we joined our friends and colleagues to march through Valletta for Malta’s 2015 Gay Pride March. Themed #Freetobeme, this year’s Pride was particularly jubilant seeing colourful floats and a more varied crowd.
“We’ve been marching in Malta’s pride for several years now. It’s a great time to meet up with our friends in the LGBTIQ networks, to celebrate our achievements and also to remind Malta of the various communities living around us.”

aditus Chairperson, Neil Falzon, participated in two events organised by the Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM). On Friday 8th, Neil delivered a presentation on the Forms of Legal Recognition of Same Sex Couples, a seminar organised by MGRM with the support of the US Embassy in Malta. Neil’s presentation provided an overview of the three main forms of legal recognition of same sex couples: marriage equality, registered partnerships, cohabitation.
The presentation may be downloaded here (pdf). The presentation was delivered in Neil’s capacity as Legal Advisor to MGRM.
The following morning Neil participated in I Am Pride, Malta’s Pride march that saw about 200 persons walking the streets of Valletta, followed by a number of speeches from representatives of the three political parties, and others.
