Council ‘sings a rainbow’ for Pride’s Come Out Of The Shadows campaign

WIRRAL Council will be lighting up public buildings in rainbow colours to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and diversity.

The move is part of Liverpool Pride’s ‘Come Out Of The Shadows’ campaign.

Until July 30, the windows in the Council Chamber at Wallasey Town Hall, overlooking the River Mersey, will reflect the colours of the rainbow flag, a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movement.

And the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, will be similarly illuminated, with other council buildings encouraged to show their support by displaying the Rainbow Flag.

Cllr Matthew Patrick, Wirral’s Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Communications, said:  “I’m proud to support this campaign. We are stronger on Wirral for our equality and diversity, and I hope everyone recognises the support for this campaign across the borough.

“Last year 27 buildings across Liverpool City region – including Wirral – created a huge impact. This year we aim to shine even brighter.”
