LGBT+ History Month.

February is LGBT+ History Month, to celebrate this, the Rainbow Flag has been raised on a flagpole outside of the Civic Centre.

In Wolverhampton, our aim is to celebrate and help to promote and educate people about gay rights and civil rights movement. It is a time to reflect on the past; the journey and troubles that the LGBT+ community have been opposed to, and to see how we can look to the future.

In these unprecedented times, the Rainbow Flag has also been used as a symbol of solidarity and support for those involved in the fight against COVID-19.
