COMMUNITY EVENT

A CELEBRATION OF LGBT LIFE

 

Brighton is marking International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) on Wednesday 17th May, 2017.

May 17th commemorates the day in 1990 the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental diseases.

 

In 86 countries globally, homosexual acts are illegal while in many countries lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and those who identify as trans are often murdered simply for their sexuality or gender identity.

 

Join us as we celebrate LGBT lives around the globe.

 

Hosted by the Volunteers of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum.

 

An alfresco evening of LGBT excellence which will include:

  • Live performances from The Rainbow Chorus & AJ Paterson
  • Poetry from Alice Denny
  • A minute's 'noise' to remember the international victims of homo, bi and transphobic violence; (so bring a whistle, horn, bell, tambourine, trombone etc to make some noise!)
  • Refreshments provided by Lunch Positive.
  • Guest Speakers include; Rev Michael Hydes, Sgt Peter Allan, Peter Kyle MP, Cllr Phelim McCafferty, Cllr Warren Morgan and the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Cllr Pete West.
