U.S. Embassy supports Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender group “We Are”

On Monday, September 10, U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Officer Winnie Hofstetter awarded a grant of $1,300 from the U.S. Government to the organization “We Are,” represented by its Secretary General, Luisa Tolu.  The funds will support a visit to Malta by Ms. Jordan Long, Policy Officer of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Youth and Student Organization (IGLYO).  During her visit, Ms. Jordan will organize train-the-trainer programs, enabling members of “We Are” to provide workshops on sexual orientation, stereotyping and gender identity for local youths.  

U.S. Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley said U.S. policy is based on the belief that LGBT rights are human rights.  She reiterated her support of the Malta Gay Rights Movement and We Are in their efforts to advance human rights and, in particular, the rights of gay people in Malta.
