To mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia the Federation of Gay Games and LGBT sports group Didesex Desportes have joined together to promote a series of events across Mexico and Central America. 
As part of the event games will be held in Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua to promote IDAHOT 2015. As well as raising awareness for the day, organisers hope that the events will help combat stereotypes about LGBTI people held in these countries.
As well as these events Didesex will hope to further combat stereotypes by sharing profiles of individuals involved through their social media in the week following May 17th. Messages and images will also be shared (in Spanish) using the hashtag #deportevshomofobia.
For more information on the games, and how you can get involved please visit the Gay Games official website, as well as the Facebook page for Didesex.
