Now, more than ever, this day is necessary.
As many know, there’s been an increasing number of anti-LGBT laws enacted in the USA.
There are still many countries where being “different” is a crime, punished by law.
Some goals have been attained but the struggle remains.
Many forces are trying to undermine those achievements and many are still trying to keep a mentality of old.
The struggle is real.
The struggle continues.
12th International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia
Today HRC honors the 12th International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, a day to celebrate how far we’ve come in the global struggle for equality and remember that the path to full equality is still strewn with barriers.
The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is observed on May 17 and aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work worldwide. In the 9th edition, in 2013, commemorations took place in almost 120 countries, in all world regions.
The founders of the International Day Against Homophobia, as it was originally known, established the IDAHO Committee to coordinate grass-roots actions in different countries, to promote the day and to lobby for official recognition on May 17.
That date was chosen to commemorate the decision to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.
