This seminar was held on Friday 8th July at Europe House in Valletta and was co-funded by the US Embassy. The legal recognition of same-sex couples is one of MGRM’s main goals and the seminar served to raise awareness among the LGBT community and other members of society on the different legislative frameworks possible. This is important particularly in view of the fact that the government may soon launch a cohabitation bill which is expected to give some rights to same-sex couples who are living together. The seminar participants were addressed by a panel which included Martin Bugelli, Head of the EC Representation Office in Malta, Dr Neil Falzon, as a legal expert, Charge’ D’Affairs, Mr Richard Mills, MP’s Stephen Spiters (PN), Evarist Bartolo (PL) and David Friggieri from AD. A Video conference was also held with Jennifer Pizer, Legal Director and Arnold D Kassoy Senior Scholar of Law.
