The Youth Group in Malta is facilitated by the Rainbow Support Service staff and is hosted at YouthHub, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ St. Joseph High Road, St. Venera. The service is open twice a month every 1st and 3rd Friday between 17:00 and 19:00. Details are available on our facebook page.
In 2013, MGRM set up the first support service for LGBTIQ individuals, their family and friends. The service is committed to enhance the quality of life of LGBTIQ individuals, their family and friends through the provision of information, consultation and psycho-social welfare services.
This project brought together LGBTIQ young people and parents of LGBTIQ individuals to draw up an information booklet aimed at LGBTIQ individuals and their parents. One part of the booklet aims to provide information for LGBTIQ individuals who are exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and gender expression, coming out issues and searching for general information on support and legal structures. For the first time, the booklet also addresses intersex persons.
This project, funded through the Voices Foundation aims to address the difficulties encountered by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth related to the recognition of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity in a society that may not always be eagerly willing to accept difference.
