Laois LGBTI+ Project has rebranded and expanded to Midlands LGBT+ Project to include all midlands counties and is marking this and International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia by raising LGBT Pride Flags in Laois, Kildare and Offaly County Council Buildings today.

Midlands LGBT+ Project say the County Council buildings in Laois, Offaly and Kildare are raising pride flags for the day in solidarity with the LGBT+ Community and to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

Midlands LGBT+ Project is a support and awareness service for LGBT+ Adults in the Midlands.

They provide peer support groups, social meet up’s, awareness events, parents support and training for schools and organisations.

All groups and training is currently taking place online in line with Covid-19 restrictions.

A spokesperson said: “This is a wonderful statement that sends a great public message to the LGBT+ Community in the three counties on this day.

“Being an LGBT+ person in rural parts of the country and in the midst of a pandemic can be particularly difficult so we want every person to know that they belong here just as they are”.

If you would like any more information or to join one of their groups you can get in touch via their Facebook Midlands LGBT Project or email help@midlandslgbtproject.com

The project is managed by Youth Work Ireland Laois.
