Today marks International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
In 2004, this day was created to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
The World Health Organisation had on this day declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder.
“Everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics have a right to equal access to opportunities, services and their safety including access to justice and health services. The LGBTIQA+ community must always be protected even during these times of the pandemic. ” says Miki Wali , Director–Haus of Khameleon.
