LGBTI meeting - Friday 20 April 2018

This Friday 20 April, we will be organising our bi-monthly meeting at the Fortini Learning Centre at 7.30pm. During this meeting a group of BSc. Nursing students, who have attended a number of sessions of the LGBTI space, will be presenting their findings on Transgender health.

We will be discussing this issue in the wider context of the Trans Health policy that has been issued in the past week, as well as in the light of the proposed amendments to the Embryo Protection Act (IVF).

We look forward to a healthy conversation and dialogue!

Drachma Seminar: The future of making babies


We would like to update you on an event that would probably interest you.  It's a conversation about: The Future of Making Babies. Perhaps you have already registered your attendance to the Drachma Conference on the Lovin Malta survey.  If not, please do so here: 


The aim of this event is to create a platform where a decent discussion on this delicate subject may take place.  We are not seeing enough debate happen and we consider this topic to be important. Your views, questions and experience may be important to contribute at this forum. If you are at a loss of what to make of all of this 'artificial reproductive stuff', then come to listen and learn - and hopefully leave the room with something more, to reflect about and to dwell upon.  Let this be an opportunity to stimulate thought and reflection on what's happening and where it's going.

Chris Peregin from Lovin Malta will be raising the questions while Dr Mark Sant (medical side) and Dr Nadia Delicata (ethical/moral) will help us explore this topic together.  Of course, you are most welcome to include your own voice and to contribute to making this conversation more holistic.

We welcome you to coffee and registration at 5p.m. The conference will begin right after and end by 7.45p.m.

Don't miss out.

Date: Friday 23rd February, 2018 
Place: Mount St Joseph Retreat House, Triq il-Missjunarji Maltin, Mosta
Time: 5p.m. until 7.45p.m.
Registration fee: €10 

Hope you can come, it's important!
