The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia 2013 is here !
We are happy and proud to report that this year more than ever activists, individuals, institutions, churches, etc.. are taking action against homo/transphobia in some 100 countries around the world.
From everywhere around the world, we have received pictures and messages to mark the Day, and we have edited them into a mosaic – or “Rainbow World Map” – which you can see below. We have edited a few special contributions into ‘postcards’ which you can discover by clicking on any one of them. Have a world tour of faces and thoughts against homophobia and transphobia !

And following our call, Flashmobs have been very popular everywhere. We have already heard of more than 70 events scheduled in at least 38 countries, from South Africa to Argentina, and even in countries where homosexuality is severely criminalized (and we can’t therefore disclose any details of these actions at the moment).
See the full list of events on this site – on the bar on the right.
It is still time for you to grab a few friends and create your own event to join in the celebrations.
See the “ideas for last minute actions” on the www.dayagainsthomophobia.org site, under take action.
