The rainbow flag will be flown outside the Millicent council chambers for the 30 days of November to coincide with the annual Pride Festival in Adelaide. The unprecedented action follows a vote of Wattle Range Council at its July monthly meeting.
Deputy Mayor Councillor Moira Neagle spoke in favour of the move along with fellow Corcoran Ward elected members Peter Dunnicliff and Dennis Muhovics. The trio said the gesture showed council was inclusive and valued the LGBTIQA+ community.
Council purchased six rainbow flags for community use a year ago and arranged for a rainbow flag to be on show in the Millicent Library along with a relevant display. Last November, the rainbow flag was flown at the seaside town by the Southend Progress Association.
