International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)
On Thursday, 17th May, Hobsons Bay will raise the rainbow flag to acknowledge International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO).
IDAHO began in 2004 and is recognised on 17th May because it's the date the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders in 1990.
Supporting and acknowledging IDAHO is one step forward in strengthening human rights for everyone regardless of their sexual orientation, sex or gender identity. It symbolises our support for and commitment to reducing the barriers faced by GLBTIQ people in our communities.
Come and help celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) in Hobsons Bay with a rainbow flag raising ceremony and morning tea.
IDAHO is the international day for taking action for a prejudice-free world regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.
Flag raising and speeches at 10.30am (@Flag Poles 115 Civic Parade Altona VIC 3018)
Morning tea at 10.45am (Foyer of the Civic Centre)
