This week the Government of Tenerife raised the flag with colours that symbolise the discrimination of transsexuals across the world, and during the night the Government building was illuminated with these colours.
This action was inspired by Transsexual Visibility Day and the local TransBoys Association in Tenerife worked with the local Government to raise awareness of sexual diversity on the island. This was the first time this initiative was carried out in a public building in Tenerife.
