Description

Since 2017, each year the United Nations LGBTI Core Group has hosted an event to commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT). The event raises awareness of the marginalization that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons face worldwide. At these events, representatives of civil society, UN entities, and member states discuss successful practices that counter discrimination and violence against LGBTI persons and recommend steps the United Nations and others can take to realize human rights and dignity for all.

The event is organized by the United Nations LGBTI Core Group IDAHOT and co-sponsored by UN Women and UNFPA.
