  • Using the slogan 'Casares, municipio orgulloso' (Casares, a proud municipality), the town hall will also be running a social media campaign

Public benches in the Costa del Sol village of Casares are to display painted diversity messages in time for the celebration of LGBTI day this Sunday 28 June.

Councillor for Equality, Antonia Pineda, explained that the aim was to "pay tribute to all those people who have fought and who keep fighting to achieve a fairer world".

Using the slogan 'Casares, municipio orgulloso' (Casares, a proud municipality), the town hall will also be running a social media campaign as normal marches have been suspended.

Residents are also urged to hang the colours of the rainbow from their balconies as well as supportive messages.
