Flintshire County Council is flying the rainbow flag outside County Hall this month to support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender history month.

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.”
