Start: The Triton Fountain, Valletta
Malta is on everyone's travel gaydar right now; after all, it was honored with the title of European Capital of Culture in 2018. What may come as a surprise, however, is its extremely liberal attitude and openness towards the LGBTQ community. In fact, Malta officially has some of the best rights for LGBTQ people in the world. And of course its dreamy island location gives you the perfect backdrop to experience your pride.
It comes as no surprise then that Gay Pride Malta 'brings the house down' each year towards the end of summer (usually in September) with a host of different events to illuminate the island with pride. Expect festivals, conferences, fashion nights, and one colorful parade to boot. Malta might be small in size, but its pride is larger than life!
Following a record number of participants in 2018, the organizers of Malta Gay Pride are hoping to smash their record again this year! Malta Gay Pride celebrations will include a street parade and concert on the afternoon of Saturday, September 14 in Valletta. Things will kick off at The Triton Fountain, on the fringe of Valletta's downtown, and will then proceed through the charming city streets. The event is free and will feature floats, dancers, street performers and more. During the evening, the official Malta Gay Pride Party is expected to take place at Tigullio nightclub.
The lively Pride Parade will be capped by both an Opening Pride Party the evening before at 11pm, and a Pride After Party on the Saturday night. Specific details, such as the location are TBC, so stay tuned. Along with this, you can look forward to loads of different events leading up to the final weekend, including a Pride Boat Party that's guaranteed to keep the party spirits 'afloat'.
So what are you waiting for? Prepare to experience your pride on an island paradise in the Mediterranean, and lock in Malta Gay Pride for 2019.
