Also called IDAHOT (International day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia).
Worldwide, on this day (17 May) attention is paid to homo- and transphobia. To discrimination and violence against our LGBTI + community. Of oppression and fear of those who are not straight or cisgender.
Although it is very important that people are made aware of the fact that this occurs (still very much!), It seems very good to us to also pay attention to what people have a phobia for. Afraid of gays? Why? Afraid of a trans woman in the ladies’ toilets? What are you actually afraid of? And why does this have to be ‘our’ problem?
