After Malta finally said 'I do' to marriage equality, a massive celebration was obviously in order. And what a celebration it was. The whole of Castille's square was lit up with all the colours of the rainbow and flooded with people partying hard in the name of love.

The bill for marriage equality passed almost completely unanimously, with 66 voting in favour and just one MP voting against. That means same-sex couples can also legally get married.

The bill comes just two years after same-sex civil unions were legalised, and some six years after divorce became an option on our shores.

Many foreign publications are often quick to point out that "Catholic" Malta has legalised same-sex marriages, but despite the odd protest, most seemed pretty relaxed about the idea.
