      Betreff: Support the International Day Against Homophobia with ILGA!

      Dear Friends,

      May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)!

      On 17 May 1990, the General Assembly of the World Health Organization
      (WHO) removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders. This
      action served to end more than a century of medical homophobia. The
      decision of the WHO constitutes a historic date and powerful symbol for
      members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community and we
      feel that it is only normal that IDAHO be recognised and observed as
      every other International Day (i.e. International Women’s Day,
      International Human Rights Day etc).

      Please help us make this day a success by signing a petition in favour
      of IDAHO at the following link: www.petitiononline.com/idaho

      For more information on the International Day Against Homophobia visit
      the website at www.idahomophobia.org

      Fifteen years ago, the International Lesbian and Gay Association was
      deeply involved in the process of getting the WHO to remove
      homosexuality from the list of mental disorders. ILGA is therefore
      strongly committed to commemorating this event by celebrating this
      first international day against homophobia.

      We thank you for signing this petition!

      Stephen Barris
      Communication Officer / ILGA
