The organisation SASOD Guyana has been organising a series of events as part of the activities planned for the week of May 17.
SASOD prepares to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) with the launch of the Campaign SASOD Cine. The Campaign is an innovative campaign to highlight the issues of homophobia and transphobia that affect LGBT people in areas such as health care and other basic social services.
The campaign SASOD Cine also seeks to reduce homophobia and transphobia in society.
The organisation, located in Georgetown, is a LGBTI human rights NGO and is working to end homophobia, transphobia and discrimination in Guyana, the Caribbean and Latin America, and worldwide.
They are also creating a “Self(ie) Expression” Album on their Facebook page as a Free Expression Zone (#FEXZone) encouraging everyone to send selfies making a statement speaking out against homophobia and transphobia. Please send all photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
