Melbourne Girls' College to fly the rainbow flag

Issue 

An inner city girls' school will fly the rainbow flag in Melbourne to show its support for the same-sex attracted and gender diverse community.

Greens MP Adam Bandt purchased the flag after putting a call out for donations last month so schools could fly the flag in support of young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and inter-sex (LGBTQI) people.

Melbourne Girls' College in Richmond will raise the flag when school resumes from holidays.

Year 12 student Naida Sheriff said she was “incredibly enthusiastic” her school would fly the rainbow flag. “It's something we've wanted for a long time and to have it is beyond fantastic,” she said.
