Rainbow flag hoisted at IHS

On 17 May 2024, the International Day Against Homophobia, Bi-, Inter- and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), the management of IHS, with the support its staff, hoisted the rainbow flag to mark this year's Pride month.

The Institute has chosen a new flag for 2024, the so-called "Progress Flag", which explicitly represents intersex and trans* people as well as queer black people and people of color and the mourning for those who died during the AIDS epidemic in its colour scheme.
