International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOT)

A worldwide celebration of sexual and gender diversity

Since 2005, May 17th has been dedicated to the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, marking the day in 1990 when the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.

IDAHOTB is celebrated in over 130 countries, uniting millions of people in support of the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is not one centralised campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of to take action.
