Today is the ninth annual International Day Against Homophobia, organised by Fondation Emergence, a Canadian charity, and supporteed by organisations worldwide – including us here at Sh!
The international Day Against Homphobia is aiming to raise awareness of, and directly combat, all forms of homophiobia and transphobia. The sad truth is that everyone will have encountered homophobia in some form, whether it’s hurtful jokes or physical violence. Homophobia is still encountered in playgrounds and workplaces, within institutions and in interpersonal relations. Homophobia has a devastating effect on lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and queer people.
The International Day Against Homophobia intends to raise awareness, and asks everyone to get involved. Whether it’s starting a conversation, hanging up a poster, making a donation, writing to your MP, getting involved in lobbying, or coming out, there’s stacks of ways to be involved with the International Day Against Homophobia – check this page for more details.
Pass the message on – Homophobia and transphobia can be stopped.
