International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)

International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)

Across the world, the 17th May marks IDAHO – International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia.  In Northern Ireland, The Rainbow Project will be holding events to mark the day.

In many different social and cultural contexts, homophobic and transphobic violence is being propagated by people who use religious arguments to justify their positions.

But other voices do exist everywhere also within these same religions to object to the use of religions to justify hatred and rejection and sometimes even violence, crimes and bloodshed.

The objective of this campaign is to expose and oppose the negative impact of religious fundamentalist discourses and to give visibility and promotion to voices  who are working for inclusion, tolerance and peace.

Joint the voices that call upon religious leaders to stop fuelling homophobia and transphobia and to act for universal Human Rights for all people.
