The Maltese sportsbook Yobetit will be the main sponsors of Malta’s Pride Week happening this September. The theme ‘From Riots to Rainbows’ is in celebration of the Stonewall riots which happened in Manhattan, New York 50 years ago. The spontaneous Stonewall riots were a response to a police raid which took place in the early morning hours of 28th June 1969 – A date which is now known as the beginning of the modern gay rights movement.
“Pride is a time where visibility and recognition are given to a minority and a time where we can express ourselves in great numbers without feeling judged,” explained Malta Pride Coordinator Clayton Mercieca.
Malta Pride celebrations will take place from 6th – 15th September, with the Pride March scheduled to happen on 14th September. The march will take place in Malta starting at The Granaries, Floriana, and ending in St.George’s Square, Valletta – where a concert will kick off until 11 pm CET. Everyone is welcome to join at any point during the day for the festivities and celebrations.
“We’re excited to have Yobetit be our Main Partners this year and have them support the LGBTQ+ community not just during Pride Week but throughout the year.” Mercieca said, adding “Companies like Yobetit enable us to grow this movement each year to reach out to more and more people who are at the fringes of society and to help us give a voice to those who are underrepresented. We look forward to taking this partnership in ways that are of mutual benefit to all involved.”
Yobetit is known for helping out the community in as many ways as possible. The company sponsors participants, events, sports teams, and more. This new partnership looks to flourish and help the gay community have a more accepting and colourful future.
