To increase public awareness of transphobia as much as homophobia, this annual event which is historically known as IDAHO will now be entitled as IDAHOT for Hong Kong rally.

Gay or straight, you can still support this day!

In the past many years, hundreds and even thousands attended the IDAHOT rally, coming from all walks of life and themselves of different sexual orientations and gender identities. There were even whole families among them.

In addition to representatives from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities, a strong line-up of public figures will share with audience their views and experiences.  Personal accounts of bullying and coming out experience will also be reinterpreted right in front of audience’s eyes.

背景:1990年5月17日,世界衛生組織將同性戀從其精神病清單中移除。在2004年,法國學者Louis-Georges Tin把5月17日定立為國際不再恐同日,促成了一個全球性運動。每年的5月17日,我們為了這個紀念性的日子齊集起來,希望會見到有一天無人再為自己的性身分而懼怕。

Background: In 1990, the World Health Organization decided to remove homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. In 2004, French academic Louis-Georges Tin made May 17 the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, which has since become a global movement. Today, we observe this tradition and hope for the day when people no longer need to live in fear because of their sexualities.

IDAHO 2012 International Campaign

The main goal of the annual campaigns is to combat homophobia. What’s more, each year the choice of a theme aims to raise people’s awareness of a particular issue. The objective of the campaign “Sexual diversity in the workplace. It pays off!” is to:

  • promote the idea that fighting homophobia in the workplace is profitable for companies, institutions and employers;
  • help gays, lesbians and transgender people reach their full potential in the workplace;
  • motivate more workers to stay in local towns instead of fleeing to big cities because of their sexual orientation;
  • inform and raise the awareness of all workers and employers about the consequences of homophobia;
  • encourage employers to adopt policies that discourage homophobia in their workplace;
  • make LGBT workers feel even more included in the businesses they work for;
  • motivate people to start LGBT committees in the workplace, for example Workplace Pride Committees and LGBT Committees in labour unions.
