Responding to a parliamentary question, Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri revealed that 100 same-sex marriages took place in 2022, with six of these in Gozo.
Camilleri also revealed that 1,216 civil marriages were registered in Malta and 68 in Gozo. The question was tabled by Nationalist MP Ivan Bartolo.
Same sex marriage was legalised in Malta in 2017, making the country the 15th nation in Europe and the 25th world-wide to legalise it at the time.
This comes as Malta continues to place 1st in the ILGA Rainbow Map and Index for 8th consecutive years and is set to hold the EuroPride in Valletta this year.
