International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia
The date of 17 May was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
The purpose of the day is to draw the attention to the discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, (LGBT) intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics. (+) To show support for IDAHOBiT day the rainbow flag is often flown to demonstrate acceptance and solidarity with LGBT+ people.
Flags will be flown at each of the DCHS UTC centres and at the Arena to mark the event.
This year we are joining with organisations across Derbyshire to show #PrideInProgress and demonstrate our support for LGBT+ communities by encouraging people to fly the Pride Progress flag and to discuss why it is important and understand what it means
