Promoting health through the life-course

International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

17 May 2017

The date of May 17th was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.

The International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia has received official recognition from several States, international institutions as the European Parliament, and by countless local authorities. Most United Nations agencies also mark the Day with specific events.

IDAHOT 2017 will focus on “Families.”
