Flying the flag for equality.
A rainbow flag was flying high above Dudley Council House as the town held its first event to celebrate International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. More than 100 people gathered in Coronation Gardens on Friday to view performances, hear recordings and see the rainbow flag being raised at the council house, as well as Dudley Castle. Compere Trixie led the event and Dudley schoolboy drag queen, Athena Heart, performed alongside Liam Prince, In Sound Company, Kimichi School in Birmingham and other schools.
The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor David Stanley, and other invited guests including Deputy Lieutenant Ninder Johal, Reverend James Treasure and Dudley North MP Ian Austin spoke at the event.
