Rainbow Toffee Flag Flies Over Goodison

The Everton Rainbow Toffee flag is flying proudly over Goodison Park today, in support of IDAHOBIT 2017 – International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.
 
IDAHOBIT, or IDAHO as it is commonly known, is held around the world on May 17 to commemorate the day in 1990 when the World Health Organisation finally removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
 
The day has arguably become one of the most important days for the LGBTI communities’ worldwide. It provides groups the chance to raise global awareness of the challenges faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex individuals, as well as promoting Human Rights for everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
 
Michelle Kirk, Equality and Disability People Partner at Everton Football Club, said: “Everton Football Club is committed to promoting equality and diversity in its supporters and staff.
 
“We’re proud to mark this day, to help promote inclusion and raise awareness, and hope that it reminds all Toffees that the Club is here to support them.”
