Besi Besemar April 1, 2017

Staff from the Brighton & Hove Councils’ Community Safety Team took to the streets of the city yesterday to show their support for International Transgender Day of Visibility.



To help promote Trans inclusion in the city they painted the colours of the transgender flag on the hands and faces of people in the city who were out and about doing their afternoon shopping.

Annabel Carrington from the Community Safety Team, said: “We had overwhelming support from the public and it was so encouraging and empowering to get so much warm understanding support from such a cross section of the city’s residents, happy to celebrate and acknowledge the contribution to the city from our Trans communities.  People gladly had the trans flag painted on their bodies or faces to visibly show their support of the day.”
