Commemorating International Day Against Homophobia Biphobia and Transphobia

May 14, 2021

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) is commemorated annually on 17 May by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) persons and their allies in over 130 countries. This year, we are all celebrating IDAHOT at a time when the world is facing a pandemic and unfortunately, COVID-19 is having an even bigger impact on vulnerable communities including LGBTI persons.

To commemorate IDAHOT, Sullivan Reed Society is partnering with the Australian High Commission, Canadian High Commission, Netherlands Embassy, Hivos East Africa and Voice  to host two virtual IDAHOT celebrations on the 17 and 20 May 2021 under the global theme, Together: Resisting, Supporting, Healing!

Join us on the 17 May 2021, for a webinar discussion as we host over 50 LGBT movement leaders to reflect and discuss, ‘leadership in a time of crisis’, highlight the lessons learned, and best practices. On 20 May 2021, we will host a ‘celebratory event’ that will bring together over 100 LGBTI community members and allies to share personal stories and experiences and to enjoy good music and entertainment.
