RAISING THE RAINBOW FLAG IN PRIDE

ByStaff Reporter

Oct 2, 2020

A colourful group of the South African LGBTIQ+ community today assembled at Constitution Hill to raise the rainbow PRIDE flag in celebration of Pride Month.

Commemorating the start of Pride Month in October, the flag-raising could be a profoundly typical signal within the LGBTIQ+ community particularly amid the month of Pride.

The occasion not only symbolises a celebration of the rights of the South African LGBTIQ+ community which are cherished in our constitution, but is also a reminder of the journey the community had to face to pick up their fundamental human rights in this nation.

Raised at Constitution Hill, home of the Constitutional Court, the PRIDE flag alongside the South African flag will be flown for the whole month of October in celebration of the LGBTQI+ community.

“Personally, for me, raising this flag symbolises that we are here, proudly, to celebrate LGBTIQ+ rights as part of South African society.  Many of our community face abuse and homophobia on a daily basis, and this flag reminds everyone that our constitution demands more … our constitution demands inclusion, dignity, respect and equality for everyone.” stated Thami Dish Foundation founder Thami Kotlolo.
