International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTIQ+ people globally, and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination.
Homophobia, biphobia, interphobia, and transphobia can occur online, face-to-face, and affect everyone by creating spaces where people feel unsafe and like they can’t be themselves. Sexuality and gender identity or intersex status aren’t always visible, so creating a culture where everyone feels safe – even if there aren’t any visible LGBTIQ+ people – is vitally important to our society.
Individuals and organisations are encouraged to join the actions taking place on IDAHOBIT.
