Flintshire’s flying the flag
Flintshire County Council is raising the rainbow flag outside County Hall again
all this month to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history
month during February.
This annual event gives people the opportunity to learn more about the
histories and achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and
the gay and civil rights movement.
It is also a time to remember the discrimination many have faced and the
journey that has been made towards LGBT equality.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Management and Assets
and Equalities Champion for the Council, Councillor Billy Mullin, said:
“Supporting LGBT history month is important for the Council. Flying the flag
throughout February month sends a clear signal that we are committed to
equality for everyone, both within the Council and in our wider community.”
This year’s theme is ‘Geography: Mapping the World’, recognising global LGBT
equality, especially now that people in Australia and up to 16 more central and
south American nations will be able to enjoy same sex weddings.
