Sinn Fein motion declaring Waterford City & County an ‘LGBT+ Freedom Zone’ passed by councillors

Gay flag to be hoisted on all local authority buildings throughout June

Sligo News File

A motion in the names of Sinn Fein councillors declaring Waterford City and County an LGBT+Freedom Zone has been unanimously passed by the elected membership of the authority.

The council has also undertaken to hoist the gay flag on all its buildings throughout the month of June each year.

Sinn Fein’s motion was passed at the October monthly meeting of the council, and presumably means that the rainbow gay pride  flag will now have equal status with the national flag in Waterford.
