IN celebration of the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) held across the globe on Wednesday  headspace Bathurst in conjunction with it’s Youth Reference Group, has wrapped the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Questioning and Asexual (LGBTIQA+) rainbow flag on trees in Bathurst.

The LGBTIQA+ community are at a higher risk of experiencing mental health concerns due to the difficulties associated with community attitudes and discloser. With this in mind, the 2017 Youth Reference Group planned to celebrate IDAHOBIT in the most public way possible; a rainbow flag wrap.

“headspace Bathurst is always passionate about celebrating our rainbow community. IDAHOBIT is our day of the year to publically support and praise the LGBTIQA+ community and ensure that they know they are valued,” Karen Golland, from headspace Bathurst said.
