Birmingham LGBT will unveil its new flag today (Friday 17 May) at an event to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia & Transphobia.
The charity will be joining other national organisations and Pride events up and down the country in using the new community-wide inclusive Pride flag, which incorporates colours representing Trans communities and queer people of colour.
The flag will be used by Birmingham LGBT at events like Birmingham Pride and the Pink Picnic, as well as on all communications that include the use of a Pride flag.
Today’s unveiling will happen as part of a celebratory event that will also feature talks and performances, as well as an appearance by writer/director Rikki Beadle Blair, best known for the films KickOff (2011), Fit (2010) and Stonewall (1995).
The event, which takes place at the Birmingham LGBT Centre from 6pm, will be catered. In consideration of Ramadan, the centre will remain open late so that members of the Muslim community can break fast as part of their evening experience.
