Fly the rainbow flag

It is time for Alpine Shire Council to join with sixty-eight other Victorian councils in flying the rainbow flag from Council Chambers on 17 May to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersex discrimination and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).

Why is this important?

Flying the rainbow flag is an important way to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual (LGBTIQA+) people who live, study, work and recreate in Alpine Shire.

This year, 86% of councils across the state of Victoria flew the rainbow flag for IDAHOBIT and next year we're aiming to make that 100%!

We want to show Alpine Shire Council that residents and supporters expect them to support our LGBTIQA+ community.

We need you to support the LGBTIQA+ community and sign the petition for Alpine Shire Council to fly the rainbow flag.

How it will be delivered

With your support, we will deliver this petition to the next Alpine Shire Council meeting.

A report on our petition is being presented at Tuesday's Council meeting

Despite our petition, Council officers have recommended not to fly the rainbow flag
