Malta ‘One Of The Most Accepting Countries In The World’, BBC Says

Malta 'One Of The Most Accepting Countries In The World', BBC Says
Feb 1 2024 Share

In a recent article by the BBC, titled “Malta: The tiny European island of tolerance”, the world-renowned broadcasting organisation has hailed Malta as “one of the most accepting countries in the world in the past 20 years”.

The feature story delves into journalist Ramona Depares first meeting with Katya ‘Kaka’ Saunders, one of Malta’s first openly transgender public personas, and highlights Malta as having a ‘trailblazing transgender model’. This personal narrative serves as a testament to the island’s broader commitment to LGBTQ+ rights and inclusivity.

The article further acknowledges Malta’s significant legislative strides, noting that it is one of only five countries globally to enshrine LGBTQ+ equality at the constitutional level. This legal framework has supported Malta in maintaining its first-place position for eight consecutive years on the ILGA-Europe Rainbow Index, which evaluates countries based on their LGBTQ+ equality laws and policies.

Moreover, the BBC article underscores Malta’s continued prioritisation of equality, pointing out that 2024 marks the 20th anniversary of Malta’s first pride march. Such milestones underscore the country’s progressive stance on LGBTQ+ rights, despite being a nation where 94% of the population identifies as Catholic.

The piece concludes by reflecting on the remarkable progress Malta has made, emphasising the impressive nature of these achievements in a predominantly Catholic country.

“All in all, it’s impressive progress for a country that also happens to be 94% Catholic”, the article concluded.
