Malta continued to offer greater equality in 2016, adding to existing standards and also establishing new anti-discrimination measures. The first adoption was finalized following the introduction of joint adoption for same-sex couples in 2014. The age at which individuals can independently opt for legal gender recognition under the 2015 legislation was reduced from 18 to 16-years of age. Gay marriage was approved in 2017.
