31 years ago – on May 17, 1990 – the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.

International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally, and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination.

THE IMPACT:

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 LGBTI people is even more important.

Ways to Celebrate:

With Mates:

IDAHOBIT isn’t just for workplaces and organisations! Celebrate at home, with mates.

At School / Uni:

Online or in the classroom, schools can drive LGBTQIA+ inclusion through IDAHOBIT.

At Work:

Digital events or small group gatherings – LGBTQIA+ inclusion is still important!

GO SOCIAL:

If it’s not online, did it even happen? Share your #IDAHOBIT adventures online – we even have some digital downloads to get you started!
