The annual event gives people the opportunity to learn more about the histories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and the gay and civil rights movement.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Last year the Council was awarded Most Improved Welsh Employer by Stonewall, the lesbian, gay and bisexual charity. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The charity’s index is an annual benchmarking exercise that ranks the best employers for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Britain. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Billy Mullin, Cabinet Member for Corporate Management said:  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The rainbow flag is an important statement for Flintshire County Council. Flying the flag throughout LGBT history month sends a clear signal that Flintshire County Council is committed to equality not just for LGBT people but for everybody both in the Council and our wider community.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
