Gay Guide Malta

Malta has no sodomy laws; however sex with minors is punishable if the minor himself/herself or his/her parents file a complaint with the police. The Age of sexual content is 18. Recent years have seen significant improvements with Malta introducing same-sex civil unions by act of parliament in April 2014. The legislation grants civil unions the same rights, responsibilities and obligations as marriage, including the right to joint adoption. Malta also introduced a gender identity law in April 2015 which recognises the right of each person to their preferred gender identity. Transgender Europe, a human rights NGO, described the new law as internationally "groundbreaking". Malta's EU membership has also promoted improvements, such as the introduction of regulations against workplace discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. In April 2014, Malta became the first European country to include protection against discrimination on the basis of gender identity in its constitution. On the social level however, things have been improving. Malta now has an active gay lobby and visibility of gay issues in the media is on the increase and is generally given positive coverage. Incidents of gay bashing are almost non-existent and the harassment on the Basis of sexual orientation is also minimal.
