Every year until 2020 we used to feature on Country Pages, which can be accessed via the interactive world map, as much information on May 17 events as we could find. We are currently unfortunately not in a capacity to do so anymore until further notice.
Country pages now only feature announcements of events that were directly registered on our site.
You can find more information on what has happens for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia by scrolling down our Twitter feed @may17org
Event: OPEN MIC
Direction: On May 15, from 2 to 6 p.m., we cordially welcome you to join us in commemorating the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB). We will be hosting an OPEN MIC where people may listen to heartfelt music, poetry, and stories of struggle and transformation, as well as will address this year’s theme, “Our Bodies.” Our Rights. Our Lives’
Time: 2 PM-5 PM
Info: Goal: To reach out to the underserved trans community and refer them to services.
To educate the community on a theme that encompasses many forms of advocacy: claiming our rights to freely express our sexualities and gender(s), but also demanding that we be free of physical violence, from so-called “therapies” to forced sterilisation of Trans and LGBTQI-phobias in their very flesh every day, and that their bodies are being abused, destroying their lives. Our lives are defined by our bodies. This community has the right to live in peace and dignity.
