In February each year, the Assembly marks Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month. This year our LGBT staff network, OUT-NAW, will be displaying a showcase of LGBT Heroes in the Senedd throughout February focussing on influential and inspirational LGBT people. Those unable to visit the Senedd can click here to see a copy of the presentation. Click here for a press release on flying the flag for LGBT equality.
As one of the top LGB-friendly organisations in the UK, we will also be flying the rainbow flag above our estate in Cardiff Bay and Colwyn Bay from February 7. This is a very public display of our commitment to our LGBT staff and to LGBT people in Wales and across the world. It exemplifies the progress made toward LGBT equality and the challenges that still lay ahead.
We have also worked with partners across South Wales to promote LGBT History Month to our staff and the people of Wales.
