Frankfurt Goal The City of Frankfurt wants all their inhabitants to live without discrimination and take part in an open and equal dialogue. The Coordination Unit cross-links the LGBTIQ communities, municipal bodies and the wider public with each other by supporting their initiatives and it stimulates an intersectional perspective, e.g. the inclusion of migrant LGBTIQ people in community events or the inclusion of Trans* perspectives in the development of municipal forms. Policy The LGBTIQ policy is part of the integration and antidiscriminatory policy of the city. The Coordinating Unit for LGBTIQ Topics is situated in the Department of Multicultural Affairs and staffed with two parttime employees. The work was initiated in 2005, including a round table on lesbian and gay issues. Since 2013 the City has invited all Pride organisers to a reception honouring their work and flies the rainbow flag from city hall during Pride Week. The Coordination Unit started their work in November 2015. Frankfurt am Main was the first city in Germany to establish a department working on integration in 1989.
