Malta Legalises Gay Marriage





Malta is one of the world’s most LGBT friendly destinations.

And as if that wasn’t endearing enough, it’s just voted to legalise same-sex marriage.

The country’s marriage act will be amended to include the term ‘spouse’ rather than 'husband and wife'.

Malta has made terrific progress towards equality in recent years which is all the more impressive as it's still a very Catholic country.

Now ranked number 1 for LGBT rights in Europe, it might surprise you that Malta only legalised divorce in 2011. 

They're certainly making up for lost time. 

It's been a positive few months for the international LGBT community; in June a court in Taiwan ruled that its ban on same-sex marriage was unlawful. Weeks later and Germany legalised gay marriage. 

We're hoping that the second half of 2017 will continue to be positive.
