Drachma, catholic group for LGBT+ of Malta, celebrate International Day Against Homophobia with a special prayer meeting
Drachma, catholic group for LGBT+ of Malta, celebrate International Day Against Homophobia with a special prayer meeting on wednesday 17 may 2023 at 7.30 p.m. at the University Chapel.
The group also called on LGBT people who are, or have been, victims of homophobia to attend and extended its invitation to their parents, family and friends.
The group hopes the meeting will be a healing encounter with Jesus, which will bring reconciliation, forgiveness, hope and life to all those who experienced or are experiencing prejudice, violence or even death in some way or another.
On May 17, 1990, the General Assembly of the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders. However, the fight for the recognition of equal rights for lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender people did not end there, the group recalled.
In 75 countries being gay is still a crime and French activist Louis-Georges Tin, founder of the International Day Against Homophobia, is hoping to change this by pushing the United Nations to adopt a resolution calling for the decriminalisation of homosexuality worldwide.
