Johannesburg, 17 May
On the 17 May 2014, The International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) is being held in more than 120 countries around the world, Transgender and Intersex Africa (TIA) joins many other organisations in the country in commemorating the day. The day seeks to raise awareness on the continuous homophobia and transphobia against LGBTI individuals by communities, states and service providers. On the day we will pay homage to those who lost their lives to hate crimes, injustice, rejection, exclusion and discrimination and raise awareness on LGBTI rights. The IDAHOT 2014 global theme is “freedom of expression”.
