On the 17th of May 2013, people all over the world will come together in solidarity to fight against homphobia and transphobia.
On this day, The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia or IDAHOT, we will raise our voices and take our cause to the streets of the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. Iranti-org, a human rights and visual media organisation, in collaboration with: Forum for the Empowerment of Women, Transgender & Intersex Africa, Coalition of African Lesbians, Ekurhuleni Pride Organising Committee, Pan Africa ILGA, Gender Dynamix, TransBantu Zambia, Sexual Rights Centre Zimbabwe and Uthingo the Rainbow, will be hosting the first large-scale IDAHOT event in South Africa.
The day will be filled with political, social and art activism as well as entertainment for all those who will be standing up for LGBTI human rights. We call on the people of South Africa to join us in ‘decolonising sexual identities’ and making LGBTI identities visible, not just in South Africa but all over the world.
