Inclusive Progressive Flag Project –
The objective of this project is to present all the Mayors of London, including the Mayor of London, the Lord Mayors of Westminster and the City of London, and all the London Borough Mayors – with an Intersex Progressive Rainbow Flag along with a copy of our community calendar.
We are inviting them to fly the flag in support of the LGBT+ community during their term of office – our community calendar highlighting dates they can show their support.
