ARC – Allied Rainbow Communities, the organisers of the Annual Malta Pride March and Concert have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Pride March & Concert which was due to take place on Saturday 12th September 2020.
ARC said that “safeguarding public health and following guidelines is paramount,” adding that they will be reinventing ourselves as a community in terms of how we get together.
“May we reiterate our statement that “it is not Pride, if it is Racist” and may we add “…and Trans exclusionary” hence, as from now on, Malta Pride shall be using the Daniel Quasar inclusive Pride Flag,” their statement said.
What is the Daniel Quasar Flag?
Graphic designer Daniel Quasar had added a five-coloured chevron to the LGBT Rainbow Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression”
On concluding ARC said that what makes the LGBTIQ+ Community Unique is the fact that it is a minority, but it is also intersectional through race, gender, belief, ability and class.
We have an important role to free the oppressed and bring about social change in our communities.
