As part of the Mesiaca LGBTI history month, the organisers celebrated IDAHOT day with a film screening and literature event.
The non-governmental organisations Human Rights Institute / Inštitút ľudských práv (IĽP) and Rainbow Slovakia / Dúhové Slovensko organised a poll to award the ‘homophobe of the year’. More than 2,600 people voted in it, with this number increasing each year. More info on the event here
The programme of the entire month included a diverse range of activities, from sports to film screenings, discussion rounds, exhibitions, concert, parties and many more. The month is organised by Dúhový rok in collaboration with other local organisations. In Bratislava, there were 13 events and in KOŠICE 3.
