September 2019 – PRIDE MALTA MONTH 🏳️🌈
6th September – Pride Fashion Show @ The Black Pearl
Throughout history, many individuals from the LGBTQ* community have found a safe haven within the fashion industry which gave them the opportunity to better their living conditions and thrive creatively – enabling them to embrace who they really are. To this extent, this year’s Malta Pride will celebrate the local fashion scene with designers, models, and artists who form part of the LGBTQ* community and their allies with the first-ever PRIDE FASHION SHOW followed by an after-party!

Ġbejniet Frisky is a fresh new campaign from LGBTI+ Gozo.
Held on September 7th at the Ministry for Gozo, as part of Malta Pride 2019. We will together take a look at the lifestyle and coming out experience in Gozo.
As the year’s Malta Pride theme is from “Riots to Rainbows” 50 years from Stonewall, we saw to get in touch with inter-generational Gozitans and learn more about their coming out experiences and what is needed more on the island of Gozo to have a truly diverse and accepting society. This event is for free and open to all.
7 – 8 September – Suspicious Baggage • Stand-Up Comedy
Stand-up comic and sweaty lady Chucky Bartolo is back with a brand new comedy show! Last March with Just Visiting, he sold out all four nights (well, except the one he stupidly placed on St. Patrick’s Day) and now he’s ready to write event descriptions in the third person. Also, to continue making you laugh till your sides hurt.
So save the date, put all your liquids in a ziplock bag and get ready for an unforgettable night that may include a cavity search. Click here for event details and ticket.

11th September – Party n’ Play – Discussing Chemsex in the Queer Community
We do not hear much about it, let alone be educated enough to make sound decisions when ‘caught in the moment’. ‘Chemsex’ is the practice of having sex whilst being high on substances including drugs. In this seminar we engage a conversation with a sexual health doctor and an individual with personal experience in the chemsex scene. We discuss terms, sexual health practices, risks and resources available as well as what we would like to see more of as a community for our wellbeing. Event page link.
