GAY TIMES is thrilled to announce that it will be the official media partner of EuroPride Valletta 2023.

Taking place from 7 to 17 September, this year’s celebration will be organised by Allied Rainbow Communities, Malta.

The theme, ‘Equality from the Heart’, aims to bring the Maltese and wider European LGBTQIA+ community together in Malta to celebrate diversity and advocate for equal rights and a more inclusive world.

Highlights of the celebrations include the EuroPride March that will serve as a declaration of love, equality and inclusion among LGBTQIA+ people and allies as they walk through the streets of Floriana and Valletta together.

Every day there will also be an array of live performances, variety shows, drag bingo, DJ sets and even a queer choir in the EuroPride Village.

Rounding out the event will be the Official EuroPride Valletta 2023 Concert, which global superstar Christina Aguilera is set to headline.

As well as this, organisers will host conferences on human rights that will take place over several days.

Among them are the forum on faith and sexuality in which participants will be able to engage in deep conversations and share personal insights about their different religious and spiritual backgrounds, while others include discussions around pinkwashing vs. allyship, sex work and LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the workplace.
