Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Despi O’Connor with September, Sylas, Charlotte, Isla, and Freya the pup.

The rainbow flag is flying at Mornington Peninsula Shire offices today to celebrate International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia. “We show our support for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual residents, community, friends, family and colleagues and their allies,” the Shire said in a statement.

“As an organisation, we are proud of our commitment to supporting our LGBTIQA+ community. In addition to marking IDAHOBIT each year, we also have a longstanding partnership with Headspace in Frankston to deliver our Peninsula Pride programs. We’ve worked together to achieve a queer-straight alliance group in every state secondary school on the Mornington Peninsula. We support Rainbow Connections, a community group providing a safe space for transgender and gender-diverse children, plus their parents/carers and siblings. We have partnered with Polykala to deliver Pride in the Workplace and build our capacity to support our workforce and our community. Our aged and disability team has trained all staff in working with our LGBTIQA+ clients.”

Mayor Despi O’Connor said: “Everyone deserves to feel safe where they live, work and play. Discrimination is not welcome at Mornington Peninsula Shire nor in our community. Sexuality and gender identity or intersex status aren’t always visible, so creating a culture where everyone feels safe and respected – even if there aren’t any visible LGBTIQA+ people – is very important. By celebrating IDAHOBIT and actively showing support for LGBTIQA+ people, we are openly challenging discrimination and celebrating pride and diversity.”
