In the enchanting embrace of Valletta, where the spirit of EuroPride 2023 ignites celebration and advocacy, Iniala Harbour House Hotel proudly unveils its transformative ‘Inclusive Escapes’ campaign.

From September 7th to September 17th – dependent on weather – the historic St Barbara Bastion will resonate with the echoes of profound words and daring expressions, as we honour the legacy of six remarkable LGBTQ+ icons who have, in their uniqueness, shaped the tapestry of our shared humanity.

As Oscar Wilde once eloquently articulated, “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Through ‘Inclusive Escapes,’ we embark on a journey beyond mere existence—a journey that echoes the sentiment of Virginia Woolf’s profound words: “Lock up your libraries if you like, but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

Freddy Mercury, whose immortal lyrics continue to reverberate through time, aptly reminds us that “The show must go on.” And indeed, it does, as we pay homage not only to Freddy’s musical prowess but also to the enduring resilience of all marginalised voices that refuse to be silenced.

In a world coloured by the audacity of Frida Kahlo’s brushstrokes and the innovation of Yves Saint Laurent’s designs, we find ourselves surrounded by a symphony of creativity that transcends boundaries and empowers us to embrace our authentic selves. Marsha P. Johnson, a courageous trans activist, reminds us that “Trans rights are human rights,” and her enduring commitment to justice serves as a beacon for a more inclusive world.

Through the ‘Inclusive Escapes’ campaign, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery and connection, where the past intertwines with the present, and where unity is cultivated through diversity. As these six iconic figures continue to inspire and guide us, we stand together as a testament to the unyielding strength of the human spirit.

Join us in capturing the essence of this historical celebration and advocacy by sharing your moments with these transformative artworks positioned outside Iniala Harbour House, overlooking the UNESCO Grand Harbour. Let the beauty of the past shape the present as we look towards a future where every voice is heard, every identity celebrated, and every heart uplifted.

This is an Iniala Harbour House campaign in collaboration with EuroPride 2023, Allied Rainbow Communities, iLab Photo and Pictures & Frames – raising funds for NGO, Allied Rainbow Communities.
