Betreff: Support the International Day Against Homophobia with ILGA!
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 Womens 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!
