Fw: Support the International Day Against Homophobia with ILGA!
- hi all,has anyone heard of this??<snip>
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 its 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 LGBT 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
