Nottinghamshire County Council has been showing its true colours in opposing discrimination and supporting diversity by marking the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) on 17th May.
The Rainbow Flag - the internationally recognised symbol of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride - is flown at County Hall and other Nottinghamshire County Council buildings.
The event commemorates the day in 1990 when the World Health Organisation declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder and is an annual landmark day for everyone who opposes prejudice and discrimination.
The County Council proactively promotes its services to the LGBT community, including civil partnerships and marriages through its registration service and opportunities for fostering and adoption.
The Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, Councillor Yvonne Woodhead officially raised the Rainbow Flag for IDAHOT Day, alongside the County Council, flag of St George and Union Flag which are flown daily.
