Through our differences, we create a diverse society – International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia IDAHOTB.

On the occasion of the 2018 International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOTB), the Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights along with our partner organizations and counterparts, calls for the end of all forms of discrimination, marginalization, and violence that affect LGBT persons in the Americas. We commit to construct a more pluralistic and accepting society based on alliances for solidarity.

Discrimination is bad for everyone. With tolerance for our differences, we create an accepting, representative, and just society. Achieving equality in laws and policies is the responsibility of States, but in order to achieve #ZeroDiscrimination, every individual must commit, take interest, and collectively create alliances for a greater and common good, because #TogetherWeAreStronger.
