The 2017 Malta Pride week will take place from the 2nd till the 10th of September, with the iconic pride parade and street concert held on Saturday, 9th September in Valletta. The chosen theme for the 2017 Malta Pride is ‘Celebrate Love, Life and Diversity’ and the programme of events will celebrate Malta as being the most LGBTIQ friendly country in Europe and the newly enacted Marriage Equality Bill.

Furthermore, a number of seminars and workshops will promote further awareness about LGBTIQ health related issues.

This year Malta Pride will also unveil an 82 foot Giant Rainbow Flag, of which LeoVegas sponsored the orange stripe. The Malta Pride Festival has a full line up with performers like Davinia, Divina de Campo, Clinton Paul, and The Maltese Conchita among many others. 

Roderick Spiteri Schillig, Head of Communications at LeoVegas, said “We are proud to be sponsoring the largest event of its kind in Malta. The main goal of this collaboration is to show LeoVegas’ commitment in embracing diversity and equality in our workforce. Our vision is to create the greatest gaming experience and be the number one mobile gaming. Today we’re over 300 employees at the Malta office and I believe that one reason for our success has been the diversity of our workforce – be it race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, ability, or sexual orientation.” 

Schillig further explained the work environment at LeoVegas is one that inspires and motivates people to be creative and entrepreneurial in their own approach.

Malta Pride Co-ordinator Russell Sammut, welcomed the partnership with one of the leading iGaming companies in Malta. "I'm delighted that employers such as LeoVegas have managed to create what is an exemplary inclusive workplace that truly celebrates equality and diversity. Through their support, this year, we will manage to raise more awareness and also enhance the overall celebrations at Malta Pride.”
