LGBT History Month in Wembley Park
We are loud and proud about celebrating LGBT + History Month this 2019 at Wembley Park!
LGBT+ History Month takes place in February each year. It provides an opportunity to recognise the achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and to raise awareness of matters affecting the LGBT+ community. This year’s theme is Peace, Activism and Reconciliation.
The Mayor of Brent joined members of the community to celebrate diversity, inclusion and tolerance at a flag raising ceremony on earlier this week and raised the rainbow flag in honour of LGBT+ History Month.
Cllr Arshad Mahmood, Mayor of Brent, said: “It is an honour to be asked to raise the rainbow flag. In Brent, we pride ourselves on celebrating diversity and inclusion. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people make an important contribution to our community. By raising awareness of LGBT+ experiences and celebrating their achievements, I believe it’s a step in the right direction to combat certain prejudices still experienced.”
The flag is proudly displayed in the Paul Daisley gardens next to Brent Civic Centre, will include talks highlighting issues affecting the LGBT+ community.
