IDAHOT know as the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia has taken place every year on May 17th since 2004. It was created to bring the world together on this day against phobia due to someone’s sexuality or sexual identity as we still see discrimination and hate crimes due to this today.

 

It’s days like these that we need to remember past transgressions made against the LGBTI people and the work we need to do moving forward.

 

“IDAHOT is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal, with 1600 events reported from 1280 organisations in 2014. These mobilisations unite millions of people in support of the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.”
