This week we are lighting up the Town Hall in the colour’s of the rainbow to show our support for our LGBTQ+ community in Selby.

February is LGBTQ+ month in the UK

The month aims to increase the visibility of LGBT+ people, their history, lives, and experiences. Awareness and education need to be raised on LGBT+ matters so that all institutions can be considered safe spaces for the community. By promoting their welfare and ensuring the education system recognizes and enables them to achieve their full potential, they can contribute fully to society and lead fulfilling lives, hence benefiting society.
