Speaking to the Fifth European Council on Transgender issues, which is meeting in Budapest, Minister Helena Dalli announced that following the Civil Union bill and the bill that amended the Constitution against any type of sexual discrimination, the next step is a Gender Identity Bill, which is still being studied by the Consultative Council of LGBTI .

Transgender persons, the minister said, should never be considered as second class citizens. 

Government is committed to make transgender persons feel welcome without any fear or threat of violence.

Malta's legislative reforms should serve as a model to all Europe, the minister said.
