Flying the flag for IDAHOBIT day

14 May 2020

On Sunday 17 May 2020 we'll be flying the rainbow flag at County Hall to mark IDAHOBIT day.


IDAHOBIT day is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. It takes place annually on 17 May to raise awareness of the issues of violence, discrimination, and repression faced by LGBT+ communities.

As part of the Derbyshire LBGT+ Network partnership we work throughout the year to tackle these issues of violence, discrimination and repression – supporting colleagues and communities throughout the county.

Domestic abuse and hate crime are on the increase during lockdown. We're here to help tackle them.

Domestic abuse can affect anybody regardless of gender or sexuality. We're helping by providing refuge accommodation and other practical support.

Hate crime is any crime which is felt by the victim, or anyone else, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice towards someone because of their identity. We encourage all hate incidents to be reported to the police. We also help to fund Stop Hate UK to provide support, advice and alternative reporting to anyone affected by hate crime.
