The Malta Gay Rights Movement will be organising a celebration outside Parliament on Monday when it is expected that the House of Representatives will be voting to enact the law enabling gays and lesbians to form a legally-recognised couple and adopt children

A Facebook page was launched as soon as it was decided that Parliament will be passing the third reading of the law on Monday, a vote that was postponed because the previous President of the Republic, George Abela, had reportedly informed the government that he had not been prepared to sign the law.

New President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca has agreed to sign it, paving the way for the House to pass the law.

Monday’s activity will start at 6pm, with Malta Gay Rights Movement president Gabi Calleja saying it will be a historic day for Malta and for the rights of minority groups.
