This annual event - marked across the world - aims to raise awareness of the discrimination faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and to take a stance against this.
We believe everyone has the right to be themselves regardless of their sexual orientation, yet homophobia, transphobia and biphobia still exist in many walks of life, and to varying degrees, which has a negative impact on LGBT and straight people alike.
Flying the rainbow flag is one way to show that we don't tolerate homophobia, transphobia or biphobia. We want our workplaces, schools and communities to be safe places where everyone is able to be themselves without fear of bullying, intimidation, abuse or harm.
If you’d like to show your support on the day you can download a rainbow flag background for your Teams meetings from the M365 learn centre.
