International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) Commemorated Around The World

May 17 is the 9th annual International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia (IDAHO). The day will be commemorated in over 100 countries around the world and will highlight the horrific consequences of homophobia and transphobia on gender and sexual minorities.

In that spirit, a handful of activists commemorating IDAHO all over the world submitted a brief post about what homophobia and transphobia look like in their countries, what they are doing for IDAHO and how IDAHO will ultimately impact their efforts at the local level to end homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

These are just a few of the many voices who will be speaking out during IDAHO. To add your own experiences and thoughts to the conversation, visit the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia’s official facebook page and tweet your using the hashtag #may17idaho.
