    Malta’s Shrinking Spaces

    There are different ways to shrink spaces in society, and the Labour government seems keen to deploy all of them. This has an impact on our physical, political, and social environments.

    To any trans women in Malta reading the comments by Jon Mallia and others, who wish they could play sport without their gender being policed by people who know nothing about trans issues and nothing about trans lives… there are spaces that welcome you!

    Jokes on a bridge.

    Happy, beautiful moments to cherish from Breakfast on a Bridge – Kisra Ħobż Flimkien this morning. A 5-year-old kid wanted to tell me some jokes, but was laughing too hard to tell them to me. So I thought I would tell him one, the only one I could think of… “What happens if you cross […]
