Demonstrating it's support for our LGBT+ community far and wide, QMUL raised the rainbow flag above the iconic Queens Building today, marking International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBiT). 

IDHOBiT was first established in 2004 to draw attention to the discrimination experienced by LGBT+ people worldwide. May 17th was chosen to commemorate the declassification of homosexuality as a mental disorder by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1990.
