Back in 2020, Allied Rainbow Communities (ARC) won the bid to bring EuroPride to Malta in 2023 and they’re working with the Maltese LGBTIQ+ community to make EuroPride Valletta 2023 a place to celebrate!
EuroPride in Malta is a ten-day event between 7 and 17 September 2023 that will feature various entertainment activities and events, including a human rights conference, Pride marches in Valletta and Victoria (Gozo), concerts as well as themed parties under the slogan #EqualityFromTheHeart.
The Maltese LGBTIQ+ community is a vibrant part of the European LGBTIQ+ movement, but as ARC told QX, “We also know that neighbouring communities in North Africa and the Middle East still struggle with LGBTIQ+ human rights issues. As a top performer in the ILGA Rainbow Index, we are committed to achieving full equality in our country and surrounding communities.”
According to Allied Rainbow Communities, “ARC was founded in 2015 to create a sense of community. Malta has come a long way in equality and civil liberties reforms, but we believe that laws and human rights are only part of the equation. Our main areas of work include Pride, Communication, Community Engagement and Networking.
ARC’s mission is to reach out to all colours of our rainbow and beyond while encouraging further growth in our communities and creating opportunities to give back to society. Our target audience is LGBTIQ+ people and allies in the Maltese Islands. The organisation aims to make the Maltese Islands a highly attractive and vibrant destination for LGBTIQ+ people to visit, work and live.”
