Stand in solidarity with LGBT+ people around the world at IDAHOBIT 2019

Besi Besemar May 15, 2019

A community event celebrating LGBT+ lives all over the world!

BRIGHTON will mark International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) on Friday, May 17, 2019.

May 17 commemorates the day in 1990 the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental diseases.

In 86 countries globally, homosexual acts remain illegal while in many countries lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and those who identify as trans (LGBT) are often murdered simply for their sexuality or gender identity.

Join the volunteers of the Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum at 6pm sharp outside of the Jubilee Library, Brighton as they celebrate LGBT+ lives around the world to mark IDAHOBIT.

The outside event will include:

♦ A minute’s ‘noise’ to remember the international victims of homo, bi and transphobic violence; (so bring a whistle, horn, bell, tambourine, trombone etc to make some noise!)
