International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) and a time to raise awareness about the basic human rights that members of our community – whether they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transexual, intersex, queer – are denied in countries around the world. Learn more about activities underway today, and the history behind IDAHO.

To commemorate IDAHO, HRC is today hosting The Road to Safety: Strengthening Protection of LGBTI Refugees in Uganda and Kenya by Human Rights First. The event is taking place today at 3:30pm at HRC’s D.C. headquarters – you can attend in person or stream it live online at

HRC’s Call It Out initiative seeks to eradicate homophobia and transphobia. Learn more about how you can get involved and make a difference.
