Did you know that today is IDAHO-day?
"It is exactly 16 years since the World Health Organization General Assembly removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders, ending medical homophobia. But legal and social discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people continues, to a greater or lesser extent, around the world."
Scary, terrible and disgraceful, but true of course. Yvonne is also right when concluding:
"The organization of an official day for the fight against homophobia in each country will allow us to place our struggle within a campaign of solidarity with all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Persons (LGTB) around the world. But it is also a question of placing our struggle within a wider campaign for the defense of human rights."
Hopefully this call will be heard among ECOSY and IUSY member organizations -- it is about celebrating diversity and standing up for very basic human rights.
