IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia), 2015

IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia): On May 17, 1990, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD 10), which no longer listed homosexuality as a diagnosis. Launched in 2004, the International Day Against Homophobia commemorating that day has become a global occasion to educate about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, and to advocate for sensible public policies regarding LGBT people. Now called the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), the observance has caught on widely as an international opportunity for individuals, groups and organizations anywhere to do anything they wish to mark the day.
