What is IDAHO?
International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is held every year on May 17th, it was started in 2004 to draw attention worldwide to the discrimination that LGBT* people face locally and globally. IDAHO “is not one centralised campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of to take action.” If you would like to know more about IDAHO, you can check it out here.
Love Makes a Family
“The family constitutes the very first environment of any person, including members of the LGBTQI community. This is the place where values are shaped and transmitted, where security and safety is provided, and the place where self-esteem and confidence are constructed. Families, therefore, have great powers … and great responsibilities in the moral and physical wellbeing of their members.”
Every year IDAHO has a theme, this year that theme is families. The focus includes the role of families in the well-being of LGBT* members and the respect of the rights of rainbow families. For more information on this years theme click here.
