The International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO Day) on Tuesday 17th May will be marked by several Rainbow Flags flying across Derby.
For years IDAHO Day has raised awareness of discrimination, homophobic abuse and hate crime. As a symbol of LGBT rights and gay pride, the Rainbow Flag is a popular way of marking the day. Flags can be seen at:
- The Council House – at 11am the Mayor of Derby will raise the flag outside the Council House in Derby
- Pride Park Staium – at 1pm the flag will be raised at Pride Park by Tom Glick (Chief Executive of Derby County Football Club)
- Royal Derby Hospital – the flag will be raised in the early morning and will be visible throughout the day
- AGE UK – will display the flag outside of the Derby shop and provide information in other outlets where possible
Please look out for the flags and do all you can to promote the ideals of IDAHO Day!
