On Sunday 17 May Salford City Council will fly the rainbow (LGBT Pride) flag to show support for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBiT).
On this day organisations and individuals come together to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and reject hate crimes and incidents committed against LGBT people because of who they are.
IDAHOBiT aims to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders and local authorities to the situation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people and those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms.
A hate incident is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender.
If you’ve experienced a hate incident or hate crime you can report it using our accident and incident report form.
Salford is home to many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people and we are proud to support our LGBT+ residents. For further information about the LGBT+ specific support available locally, visit our support pages.
