The president of Malta, George Abela, met with the executive board and staff members of the European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (aka ILGA-Europe) Oct. 27 as the group prepared to open its 13th annual conference in the island nation.
During the meeting at the presidential palace, Abela said that information and education are important in tackling discrimination and fostering acceptance of differences – and that Malta has seen progress in GLBT acceptance.
He also said love is the most important thing there is and that it can’t be “graded” based on sexual orientation.
It was the first time a head of state met with ILGA-Europe members during one of the group’s annual conferences.
