IDAHOBIT: unity in diversity
The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTIQA+ people globablly, and raises awareness for the work still needed to support and advocate for LGBTIQA+ rights. May 17th is IDAHOBIT, and we stand united in solidarity and alongside LGBTIQA+ youth, their friends, families and allies. Click here for more information on IDAHOBIT and its history.
Not only is this is a time to celebrate the achievements and resilience of LGBTIQA+ communities, but it's also an opportunity to recognise that there is still a long way to go in the fight against discrimination, and to note what positive actions we can take moving forward.
It is a time for LGBTIQA+ allies to read up on why we still need to fight for our rights, to consider their privilege, to reach out and check in with the LGBTIQA+ people in their lives, and play an important and active role in supporting all people within our communities.
Today we also celebrate the strength of our Youth Advocacy Group. Here, Alex, Felicity and Matt share their stories and thoughts about what IDAHOBIT means to them. Click the images below to check out what they had to say:
