Three Steps to Recognize IDAHOTB (While You’re Stuck at Home)
Just because you’re staying in, and times are tough, doesn’t mean you can’t recognize the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. So, stay safe and take these steps to engage.
Learn: Read about the history of IDAHOTB and why May 17 was selected as the date for such an important visibility and awareness event. You can also learn more about the experiences of LGBTQ+ globally – did you know you can be sentenced to death for being gay, lesbian, or bisexual in 11 countries? – by checking out some of resources from ILGA World.
Share: Check out the posters available from may17.org, download your favorites, and share them on social media. Be sure to like and follow may17.org and their IDAHOTB partners so that you can elevate their posts today and all year long!
Something to Talk About LIVE:
Something to Talk About LIVE, hosted by the PFLAG National Learning & Inclusion team, is a weekly broadcast that creates conversations around LGBTQ+ inclusion and diversity. Join us every Thursday at 4:30pm ET/1:30pm PT on social media (including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn) to be a part of the discussion. Viewers are invited to share their thoughts, ask questions, and their comments may even be featured on the live stream!
You can also use the article and questions posted each week to create your own conversations with colleagues, classmates, friends, and family members!
