Today marks the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT). The day represents an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders and local authorities to the alarming situation faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms. It is also an opportunity to recognise the bravery of IDAHOT activists and allies around the world.
