Austria IDAHO report 2013


The global call to organise flashmobs to mark IDAHO was taken up in Austria by the Green Party, whose Youth section inspired activists to organise same sex hand-holding flashmobs in seven major cities across the country (Vienna, Graz, Dornbirn, Kufstein, Salzburg, Wels and Baden). These were all held on the afternoon of May 17. A rainbow balloon release was also held in Vienna, whilst LGBT people, friends and allies, took to the streets on Saturday, May 18 with a ‘WALK4IDAHO’ demonstration.

A teaser video for the hand-holding campaign can be viewed here:

The national LGBT organisation HOSI also joined in the Rainbow Flashmob celebrations by organising a central event in the capital Vienna.
