Taking a stand against homophobia and transphobia

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) and Out & Equal joins with people from around the world in taking a stand for equal rights for LGBT people. Visit their website for more information about campaigns for LGBT human rights around the world and activities that are happening today.

Navanethem (Navi) Pillay, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, has released a video about sexual orientation and gender identity in the context of global human rights that is included on the IDAHO website. She speaks compellingly about the work that still needs to be done, as well as the context for full human rights for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people.
