🏳️🌈 Strathbogie Shire Council will prepare a report for Councillors to consider in the near future on flying the rainbow flag in the Shire

Turn Strathbogie Rainbow
It is time for Strathbogie Shire Council to join with seventy-one other Victorian councils in flying the rainbow flag from council buildings or illuminating council buildings or trees in rainbow colours on 17 May to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersex discrimination and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).
Why is this important?
Flying the rainbow is an important way to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual (LGBTIQA+) people who live, study, work and recreate in Strathbogie 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 Strathbogie 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 Strathbogie Shire Council to fly the rainbow flag.
How it will be delivered
We will deliver this petition to the next Strathbogie Shire Council meeting.
