you are invited to join us on the upcoming International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (or IDAHOBIT)!
Every May 17, our global community comes together to draw the attention of the world to the realities of people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics. It is a day to call out human rights violations that we keep facing every day, but also a moment of global pride and hope which has been celebrated in over 130 countries over the years.
This year, the global theme is “Breaking the Silence”, and it is all the more relevant now, when COVID-19 is pulling us apart.
At ILGA World, we are inviting you to join our social media campaign to make our voices heard!
You can do so in 3 easy steps:
- Grab your smartphone, and get ready to film yourself!
PRO TIP: Make it rainbow, use your favourite Pride flag and colours, be creative with your backgrounds and settings!
- Bang your hands on the table 3 times, then chant "We are here!" in your language
- Stop recording and send the video to [email protected] by Thursday 14 May!
Your videos will come together in a beautiful social media clip.
Join us, and help us raise your voices against LGBTI-phobia. Together, we will be breaking the silence!
