Rainbow Flags over the White House

HBTQ-LU, the Lund University network for LGBTQ employees, arranged an outdoor gathering as the rainbow flags were raised on the University Building on IDAHOT Day.

Rainbow Flags over the White House

The main building of Lund University, sometimes called The White House, is one of many white buildings where power resides. On May 17, the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, two rainbow flags were raised on its roof - a tradition that dates back to 2014.

– This is not an insignificant gesture, said Jens Rydström, member and co-founder of HBTQ-LU, the network for LGBTQ employees that has existed since 2012. Queer rights are about openness, visibility and respect, and we acknowledge the fact that Lund University stands up for diversity in a time of crisis. By flying the rainbow flag over its most symbolic building it sends out a signal that Lund University supports equality and diversity. The University could and should do more for its LGBTQ employees and students, but today we want to celebrate what we have achieved.

A small number of people had showed up for the ceremony - at eight o'clock on a Sunday morning - but members of the network could also follow the ceremony via an online meeting. Among those present was Nils Danielsen, former deputy vice chancellor, who in 2014 was responsible for the decision to fly rainbow flags on the University Building on IDAHOT Day.
