    Nista’ ngħid li l-esperjenzi tiegħi bħala persuna gay huma esperjenzi uniċi li ffurmawni u għadhom qed jiffurmawni, kif wara kollox huma l-esperjenzi li kull wieħed u waħda minna jgħaddu minnhom kuljum. T’età żgħira kont diġà nħoss ġibda lejn l-għalliema rġiel fl-iskola primarja tiegħi, però ma kontx nifhem x’qed jiġri ġo fija. ...

  • Who is the refugee in Malta

    Anton Falzon

    Today is World Refugee Day and this made me ask myself who is a refugee and who are the refugees we are asked to remember on this day. Unfortunately certain people still pass certain comments such as ‘another boat full of those people has arrived!’, ‘Why don’t they find another ...
