This year’s International Day against Homophoba, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) has a global theme, “Alliances for Solidarity, inviting agencies, organizations, individuals and allies to take a collective stand to fight intolerable acts of discrimination, oppression, marginalization and exclusion of members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community. The world today is in the forefront of battling systematic injustices against the LGBTIQ community and this IDAHOT, it is more crucial, than ever, to join hands and collectively stand for equality and acceptance.
Youth Voices Count joins this year by starting an interactive meme campaign calling on our partners, members and allies to send in a message of solidarity for the LGBTIQ community, especially young people who are highly affected by these social inequalities.
Today, we share to you some of the powerful voices who stood up and accepted the commitment to stand for the youth. Working under our hashtag, #UnityForYouth, we are pleased to share with you these messages.
