Despite today’s rain, there was a good turn out at the Derby Council Offices for the ceremony and raising of the rainbow flag. We were saddened that PCC Hardyal Dhindsa was unable to be in attendance and mark the occasion, but Derby Mayoress Linda Winter raised the flag, and Gordon Sterling, Director of Strategic Services and Transformation at Derby City Council gave a speech on the history and the importance of the event, highlighting current difficulties that LGBT+ people face around the world. This was followed by our very own Greg Pickup talking about the work of Derbyshire LGBT+ and our Hidden Histories archives project before everyone shared a beautiful cake and had refreshments.
