As EuroPride Valletta 2023 kicks off, an exhibition showcasing the march towards more rights in support of the LGBTIQ+ community was launched in the Ċentru Nazzjonali Laburista l-Ħamrun.
The exhibition showcases the movements towards the acquisition of more rights for the community over the past 50 years, starting with 1973 decriminalisation of homosexuality.
