Decided during a large consultation with LGBTIQ organisations from across the world, the theme will allow for advocacy and celebrations in many forms - be them from human rights defenders, LGBTIQ civil society groups, millions of people in our communities, and our allies.
At a time when hard-won advances for our LGBTI communities around the globe are increasingly under threat, the power of solidarity, allyship and community across identities, borders, and movements has never been more necessary.
When we unite, in all our beautiful diversity, that’s when we can really bring about change!
How are you planning to mark this year’s IDAHOBIT? Let us know at contact(at)may17.org or idahobit(at)ilga.org, and don’t forget to register your events for them to be shown in our global map of initiatives!
To facilitate participation at all levels in such a relevant day for our communities worldwide, as of January 2023 ILGA World has taken a more active role around IDAHOBIT, by coordinating the Working Group and hosting its Secretariat.
