Events around the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia in Honduras lasted a week, and were spread across three different cities. A sexual diversity film mini-festival, tackling themes of ‘homo, lesbo and transphobia’ was held in the city of Comayagüela. The screenings targeted educators specifically and featured a showing of the documentary En Mis Tacones In My Heels about the lives of Honduran trans women. Lesbian and trans activists joined together for a day of visibility on May 14. They installed various information in the central park of Honduras’ capital city, Tegucigalpa, and conducted awareness raising activities in other parts of the city.

Report also available in Spanish.
A University Forum on violence towards the LGBT community, a memorial service and prize giving, and national newspaper coverage also marked the year’s commemorations. Events culminated on Friday May 17, with a press conference exposing the causes and effects of violence against LGBT communities, and a march and candlelit ceremony. Participants were
asked to attend in green – a culturally recognised symbol of hope.
