Kitba Queer is a community-based project that was launched in 2018, aiming to fill the void created by the lack of visibility and good representation in fiction that queer communities face in the Maltese Islands.
Through workshops, mingle & create sessions and fundraising activities, the project fostered a diverse community of creators to learn, practice and encourage collaboration to improve their writing and artistic skills. In 2018, the project was run by We Are – the Youth & Student LGBTQQI Organisation.
In October 2018, Malta’s first ever anthology of LGBTQI+ literature, comprising short poems, prose and a children’s story in Maltese and English, as well as illustrations, was published. The anthology was compiled by various young queer local artists and artists, dealing with topics such as love and relationships, identity and self-discovery, and the process of acceptance.
Kitba Queer continued in 2020, in collaboration with MGRM- the Malta LGBTIQ Rights Movement.
