Malta Pride Week is one of the later pride events to take place in Europe. This year’s event will be held between Friday 2nd and Sunday 11th September 2022. Malta Pride Week involves a number of events, initiatives and opportunities for the LGBTIQ+ community to come together, raise awareness, and celebrate diversity and inclusion.
Consistently for the last couple of years, Malta has been ranked as being the most LGBTIQ+ friendly country in Europe according to the ILGA Rainbow Index. Consequently, Malta appeared in Europe’s travel gaydar due to the people’s extremely liberal attitude and openness towards the LGBTIQ+ community.
Malta Gay Pride will include various cultural events, parties, festivals, conferences, fashion nights and other activities culminating in a weekend parade through the streets of Malta’s capital Valletta.
September is also an ideal time to visit Malta. The weather is still warm and sunny – perfect to stay outdoors, explore Valletta, and also spend time at the various beaches spread across Malta’s shoreline.
Malta Pride Week is organised by Allied Rainbow Communities. For more information and news, visit the Malta Pride’s Facebook Page (@prideinmalta) and website www.maltapride.org.
