International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB)
The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB) is recognized on May 17 in many countries around the world. This recognition began in 2004 as an opportunity to draw attention to ongoing violence and discrimination towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics. While the date was chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s action in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder, sexual and gender diverse communities continue to face ongoing barriers in many aspects of Canadian society. This day is also an opportunity to celebrate the resilience, connections, and self-determination of 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

This year, the University of Toronto Sexual & Gender Diversity Office, in collaboration with the UTM Indigenous Centre, UTSC Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office, and the UTM Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office are proud to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia 2022 theme of Our Bodies. Our Lives. Our Rights. by welcoming powerful advocates and educators within and outside of 2SLGBTQ+ communities: Keith McCrady, Executive Director of 2Spirited People of the 1st Nations organization, and Monica Forrester, founder of Trans Pride Toronto.

Please join this IDAHOTB event to witness a conversation between Keith and Monica who will be sharing their knowledge, wisdom, and experiences about the issues that continue for the 2SLGBTQ+ communities that they serve and the ongoing work that is needed to promote self-determination, equity, and well-being.
