ARC was founded out of a need to create a sense of community. Malta has come a long way with equality reforms and civil liberties, but we believe laws & rights are only one part of the equation. Our main areas of work include: Pride, Communications, Community Engagement and Networking.
Gay Guide Malta`s mission is to deliver the most up to date information on Gay Malta allowing you to plan your trip and have a holiday to remember. We are the only Gay Guide based in Malta.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in Malta are of the highest standards, even by comparison to other European countries. Throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the rights of the LGBT community received more awareness and same-sex sexual activity was legalised in 1973, with an equal age of consent.
MGRM was set up in 2001 by a small group of volunteers who were determined to bring about change. They were committed to setting up a helpline and to start raising awareness and combating the stigma faced by the LGBTIQ community. With no premises, no funds and very little expertise they set about making a difference.
