On May 15th the Standard Chartered Bank together with EQUAL GROUND planned an IDAHOT awareness action amongst its employees at their head office in Colombo.  IDAHOT videos will be looped and screened at their canteen from 11am till 3pm while a flash mob will perform in the canteen 3 times during the day.  Rainbow Flags were therefore planned to adorn the various departments at the SCB office and building.

On May 18th, EQUAL GROUND held its commemoration of IDAHOT with the screening of the film “I AM WHAT I AM” – a film on the lives of transgenders in Sri Lanka and a social gathering.
