The Progress Pride flag has been raised outside the Civic Offices in Milton Keynes to mark Pride Month and show support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Throughout June, people across the world celebrate Pride Month by coming together to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, it celebrates acceptance, equality, education, history and raises awareness of work that still needs to be done.

Milton Keynes Council has raised the Progress Pride flag outside of the Civic Offices in Central Milton Keynes to mark the occasion.

A spokesperson for MK Council wrote: "This #PrideMonth, Progressive Alliance-led MK Council is flying the progress flag outside the Civic offices We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ siblings"

The Progress Pride flag, which can be seen outside of the Civic offices, was developed in 2018 by non-binary American artist and designer Daniel Quasar.

The flag incorporates the iconic rainbow flag with black, brown, pink, pale blue and white stripes, representing people of colour, the trans community, and people living with HIV/AIDS.
