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.
Learn more about homelessness and LGBTIQ+ people in the About homelessness section of our website.
International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia, and Transphobia is organised by Minus18. For more information about how you can get involved, visit the IDAHOBIT website.
