Mornington Peninsula Shire, in collaboration with Frankston Headspace, celebrated IDAHOBIT Day 2017 on Wednesday 17 May.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Bev Colomb, Briars Ward Councillors Sam Hearn and Rosie Clark, Seawinds Ward Councillor Antonella Celi, Red Hill Ward Councillor David Gill and Cerberus Ward Councillor Kate Roper joined the local community in recognition of the IDAHOBIT Day through rainbow flag raising ceremonies at the Shire offices. 

Councillor Colomb said it was an honour to join the local community in supporting this great initiative.

“I am proud to represent a Council that supports diversity. Leadership means being on the front foot, and Councillors are committed to being leaders in equality for their community,” said Councillor Colomb. 

IDAHOBIT Day is celebrated on 17 May all over Australia where the public join together in the fight against discrimination in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTIQ+) mates, colleagues and families.

IDAHOT day began in 2004 to capture the attention of leaders around the world and end violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTIQ+ people internationally.
