IDAHOBIT 2022 Our Bodies, Our Lives Our Rights

IDAHOBIT is a worldwide celebration of sexual identity & gender diversity and the 2022 theme is ‘Our Bodies, Our Lives, Our Rights

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.

The date of May 17th was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder. IDAHOBIT is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal.
