International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia And Biphobia

EDM number 1282 in 2017-19, proposed by Angela Crawley on 17/05/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Equality, Gender recognition and Sex discrimination.

That this House welcomes the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT); understands that the date of 17 May was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization's decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder; believes that IDAHOT unites the LGBTI community against discrimination and highlights the ongoing challenges that community faces; recognises that 17 May is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same sex acts are illegal, with 1600 events reported from 1,280 organisations in 2014; and supports campaigners in their efforts to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
