International Day Against

Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia

“No one left behind: equality, freedom and justice for all”

 May 17th 2024 


The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) is celebrated every year on May 17th. It is a global campaign aimed at raising awareness about the ongoing discrimination, violence, and marginalisation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex people, and all of those with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics. The campaign seeks to celebrate diversity and advocate for the rights of LGBTQIA+ people.

This year's theme, No One Left Behind: equality, freedom and Justice for All, is a call for unity: only through solidarity will we create a world without injustice, where no one is left behind. In a time where the progress made by our LGBTQIA+ communities worldwide is increasingly at risk, it is crucial to recognise the power of solidarity, community, and allyship across different identities, movements, and borders. We can bring about change when we unite in all our beautiful diversity!


By coming together and raising our voices, we can make a difference in the lives of LGBTQIA+ individuals and communities worldwide. On May 17th 2024, International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia, let's get together, resist discrimination, and promote healing!​
