On May 17 the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) will be celebrated in at least 130 countries worldwide. The date is significant, as it was on that day in 1990 that the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
The motto for the 2017 IDAHOT is “Love makes a family”. To mark IDAHOT Unifor will join in a day of global mobilization, as millions unite to stand against the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people internationally and to support human rights and equality for all.
