In February each year Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans (LGBT) History month celebrates the lives and achievements of the LGBT community.
Whilst we stand up for equality and diversity all year round this month long initiative provides a particular opportunity to raise awareness for LGBT causes.
Research shows that people from LGBT communities are more likely to experience mental health difficulties such as anxiety and depression and are at greater risk of self-harm, due to the prejudice attached to their identity. Many live in fear of ostracism and victimisation.
As a symbol of its support for LGBT History month the council will be flying the rainbow flag outside the Guildhall.
“We’re pleased to help raise awareness of LGBT causes”
