Our rainbow celebration to mark IDAHOT day
News article - 17 May 2015
17 May is International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. To mark this day GCHQ is illuminating its iconic building with the colours of the rainbow.
Last year we raised the rainbow flag on the GCHQ flagpole to show all our staff that we value our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) colleagues and are a modern organisation that does not tolerate discrimination in any form.
This year we wanted to make a bold statement to show the nation we serve how strongly we believe in this.
