Malta Gay Pride 2023
The first recorded LGBTIQ+ Pride Demonstration in Malta was held in 2004 and organised by the Malta LGBTIQ Rights Movement (MGRM).
Back then, not more than 50 demonstrators marched along the Capital City of Valletta, most of whom were straight allies and some politicians who supported equality. The theme used was “Gay Rights? Human Rights!”
Since then Pride kept its annual appointment hoping to drive the message of the LGBTIQ+ Community across the whole island, yet participation numbers during the demonstration barely exceeded 500 people up until 2015.
