As EuroPride Valletta draws nearer, the programme for the LGBTIQ+ Human Rights Conference has been released, offering a wide range of talks and discussions pertaining to various topics in relation to the community and other facets of life.
‘This year, in hosting EuroPride Valletta 2023, we take advantage of Malta’s geographic location and historical standing to discuss beyond LGBTIQ+ equality in Europe. This LGBTIQ+ Human Rights Conference aims at building bridges across the Mediterranean Sea and seeks to take stock of the progress and challenges in the advancement of LGBTIQ+ rights in this geographic region.’
The programme, which begins on the 13th of September until the 15th, offers talks such as: ‘Access to Rights for LGBTIQ+ Migrants in the Asylum System’, ‘Promoting Inclusion at the Intersection of Faith & LGBTIQ+ Identities’, and ‘Activism and Resilience: LGBTIQ+ Rights in the Middle East & North Africa’.
The conference will offer networking opportunities, artistic performances and much more! All with the goal of furthering conversation and awareness about the LGBTIQ+ community.
