Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

On 17th May 2017 we will be supporting the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBiT) to share the challenges that our colleagues, the public and those all over the world face because of their sexuality or gender identity.

The day is celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. It is an opportunity to highlight the situations faced by LGBT+ communities and all those who don't conform to majority sexual and gender norms.

On the day there will be a variety of activities taking place across the Force, see below to find out how you can get involved:

Come along to Guildford town centre: Between 10.00am and 2.00pm the Diversity team, along with members from the LGBT+ Staff Network, LGBT+ Liaison Officers and Straight Allies will be at The Rotunda (Stone Circle, outside the Friary Centre) to speak with the public about how we support our local LGBT+ communities.

Wear something rainbow coloured: Staff and officers are actively encouraged to wear rainbow colours. You can show your support by wearing a rainbow tie, socks or simply a Straight Allies badge.
