LGBT Friendly Roscommon 2017

LGBT Friendly Roscommon 2017 is a public awareness initiative organised by the LGBT Sub-Group of Roscommon Children and Young People’s Services Committee and is the result of a collaboration of many agencies including Tusla Child and Family Agency, Office for Suicide Prevention HSE, Foróige, Comhairle na nÓg, Social Inclusion Office of Roscommon County Council, Roscommon LEADER Partnership and Second Level Schools in the County.

This initiative is aimed at making service providers, community groups and sports clubs more LGBT friendly.  The initiative comprises three elements:

Strand 1: LGBT Friendly Roscommon 2017 symbol

Designed by Luke McEvoy, a secondary school student of Elphin Community College, the LGBT Friendly Roscommon 2017 symbol will help identify services and spaces as LGBT friendly. The rationale for a bespoke, Roscommon-specific, symbol is to encourage people to view issues affecting LGBT young people as locally relevant.
