HOSI, the Homosexual Initiative in Salzburg, Austria in an joint effort with other local groups has organised the Walk 4 IDAHO demonstration and a party on May 17 to celebrate IDAHOT. The organisers want to use this event to show the importance of Human Rights and Freedom of Expression for LGBT people worldwide.
The Walk 4 IDAHO 2014 is meant to raise awareness within society that LGBT people worldwide are still confronted with discrimination, violence, prosecution, abuse and murder. They also want to make clear that also in Austria LGBT people can not enjoy full equal rights and social acceptance, yet. Their event stands for diversity, visibility and acceptance.
The demonstration will start at 2:30 pm at the Neue Mitte Lehen, City Library (Schumacherstraße 14) and will end at the Glockengasse with a final rally. The parade will be jazzed up with DJ sounds. Afterwards everyone is invited to join the Party at the 3Stein Gaybar.
