    Flanders supports LGBTIQ+ rights

    17 May is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (#IDAHOT), and the theme for 2022 is: “Our Bodies, Our Live, Our Rights”. The LGBTIQ+ community chose 17 May to mark the date in 1990, when the World Health Organisation (WHO) declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. The day is celebrated with events in 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts remain illegal today. To show our support for the LGBTIQ+ community, the buildings of the Flemish public administration and several of Flanders’ Diplomatic Representations abroad are flying the rainbow flag.
