Gay community and gay life in Malta

Post Posted: Sat Jun 04, 2011 4:33 am

I've done considerable online research about possible places to retire, and admittedly, I am intrigued by what I have learned about Malta in that regard.

I intend to visit Malta next summer, as a tourist, but also to explore Malta as a potential place to live when I retire in 2014.

I am a U.S. citizen, single, and a federal employee. I have financially planned and saved for my retirement for my entire professional career. So I expect retire on a decent pension, with ample retirement savings, and accumulated home equity liquidity.

Perhaps this isn’t the appropriate forum to pose this question, but I am curious to know if Malta would be welcoming to an unrepentant and openly gay man?

Being a predominantly Catholic country, I’m concerned that Malta might be as politically conservative as the U.S. has recently become. And that living in Malta would be as repressive as living in the American South or Midwest.

From what I can tell online, there doesn’t seem to be much gay community in Malta, except one or two clubs in Paceville. And at my age, I am more interested in living openly in an accepting neighborhood than spending time in bars.

To be frank, I am more into learning about local history and culture, or having a good conversation with gay or straight friends about world politics over dinner and a glass of wine, than spending time in gay dance clubs.

Any insight from local Maltese or expats about gay community, gay life, and acceptance of LGBT people in Malta would be appreciated.
