Launch of book by Drachma Parents Group

MAPFRE Middlesea and MSV Life are supporting the launch of the book ‘Uliedna Rigal: 50 mistoqsija u tweġiba għal ġenituri ta’ wlied LGBTIQ’, a new publication by Drachma Parents Group.
The book was launched at the University Chaplaincy on Tuesday 17 May – a day which also marked International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO).  President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca was also present for the launch.
The book intended to serve as a good resource and tool for parents, educators and other professionals working with LGBTIQ persons, their families and friends.  In a simple question and answer format it addresses several questions one might have.  These include - is being gay a choice?  Does one’s upbringing have to do with it?  How do I inform other relatives about it?  Is my son prone to aids?
The book contains several personal stories of families which have passed through this journey – from accepting one’s sexuality to expressing unconditional love to their LGBTIQ relative.
Drachma Malta includes lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered and intersex persons, as well as friends of LGBTI persons who wish to meet to pray together and explore the intersections between sexuality, gender, gender identity, faith, spirituality and religion.
Copies of the book are being sold at €10.
MAPFRE Middlesea (C-5553) is authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority to carry on both Long Term and General Business under the Insurance Business Act, 1998.
