On the 17th May 1990 the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders. Now IDAHO exists to provoke action to end Homophobia.
An International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) provides a platform for everyone to make a powerful statement to demand improvements for the quality of life for LGBT people both overseas and here in the UK. The 17th May can be used to raise awareness of homophobic issues that are negatively impacting on people’s lives and to showcase success stories where a positive change has been achieved.
