Formentera allies itself with LGTBI community

foto bandera lgbtToday, June 28, World Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual and Intersex (LGTBI) Pride Day, a  rainbow flag —a symbol of pride for LGTBI movements— was hung from the balcony of the Formentera Council. The flag presented a public symbol of the administration's commitment to those communities. The decision to raise the flag —“a call for respect and visibility for sexual and gender diversity”— came on the back of a joint measure put forward by Gent per Formentera and the socialist party at the CiF plenary session Friday, June 24.

Additionally, Formentera has joined a network of public administrations dubbed Municipis Orgullosos which support LGTBI causes. The push is being fronted by Ben Amics, an Balearic Islands-based association that mobilises around LGTBI issues. The CiF's councillor from the socialist party, Rafael Ramírez, along with social welfare councillor Vanessa Parellada and vice-president Alejandra Ferrer, were all three present has the flag was raised.
