IDAHOT / IDAHOBIT 2015 - Sunday 17 May in Sheffield

This Sunday (May 17th) sees Sheffield once again make some noise to mark IDAHOT - International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

(You may also see reference to IDAHOBIT - International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.)

LGBT Sheffield are proud to be involved again this year. Information from the organising group (via Facebook):

"Now in its 10th year, May the 17th sees the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) and commemorates the date in 1990 on which the World Health Organisation declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder.

To mark the day, a public event will be taking place in the Sheffield Peace Gardens at 12 noon on Sunday 17th May, where a one-minute ‘noise' will join our voices with other events across the world to send a clear message that homophobia and transphobia have no place in our society. We hope you, your friends and families can join us in making as much noise as possible!

To continue the celebration of sexual and gender diversities in our city, and directly after the event in the Peace Gardens, Museums Sheffield will be holding a range of free exhibitions, stalls and presentation activities between 1pm-4pm at the Millennium Gallery.
