Tue, August 28, 2018

Groups who work to support the LGBT community have enjoyed a civic reception with the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

The event was held to recognise their contribution to health and wellbeing promotion as well as marriage equality.

Speaking afterwards the Mayor, Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “I wanted to meet with the groups to hear about their campaign work and the services they provide. It was fantastic to see such a range of organisations represented. I think it is very important that we ensure that those working to promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities feel valued and appreciated and I want to personally commend them for their ongoing work.”

The event was attended by members of the Rainbow Project, Equality NI, Pride Belfast, Pride Derry, Common Youth and Cara Friend.
