🏳️🌈 Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). It's a day that celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally, and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination. It's saddening that 75% of LGBTQIA+ youth in Australia experience some form of discrimination. Today, the Rainbow flag will be flying at half mast at the council office to recognise and honour our LGBTQIA+ community members. We are committed to work continuously to create inclusive environments for young LGBTQIA+ folk.
🌈If you're a LGBTQIA+ young person looking for a safe space, our Rainbow Valley group is a great place to meet friends and express who you are! Head to the link in bio for more info on how to join 🔗...
