The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is observed on May 17 each year and aims to coordinate International events that raise awareness of LGBT2Q+ rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT2Q+ rights work worldwide.
The founders of the International Day Against Homophobia, as it was originally known, established the IDAHO Committee to coordinate grass-roots actions in different countries, to promote the day and to lobby for official recognition on May 17. That date was chosen to commemorate the decision to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.
PFLAG London & Pride London Festival invite you to an evening of celebration and acceptance on Thursday, May 17th at The Aeolian. This event will bring guests together to celebrate as a London community and commit to working together to continue addressing homophobia, transphobia and biphobia.
Our celebration will include live performances from local LGBT2Q+ artists and our allies.
This event is family friendly and free for everyone to attend. Join us as we celebrate and move towards a London that is welcoming and inclusive to all.
