Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Why do we Raise the Rainbow Flag?

The Rainbow Flag has become an international symbol for LGBT pride and rights. Durham University raises the flag to show the strength in our diversity and our commitment to being an inclusive environment in which all staff and students can feel comfortable with being themselves. More than ever we need to show our support for those LGBT people who continue to face harassment, discrimination and even violence for being who they are.
