Gay and lesbian couples will finally get some official recognition under a plan floated by Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. The Times of Malta reports:

Civil unions for same sex couples will be introduced by the end of the year, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said this afternoon after he was presented with the Soldier Award as an “agent of change”.The award was presented by the social group Gay Exiles, which represents Maltese who had to leave their families to live in foreign countries with their loved ones, who happened to be of the same sex.

A good first step to provide some legal protections to Malta’s gay and lesbian couples.
