Here is to Today being International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and all Forms of 'Bullying'

Why Is May 17 International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia?

Why Is May 17 International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia?
The Background to IDAHOT
The International Day Against Homophobia, taking inspiration from fledgling national events, was created in August 2004 by Lois-Georges Tin, a French university lecturer and equal rights campaigner.The event was designed to create a global day of action against homophobia and to raise awareness for the cause of LGBT rights.
May 17 was chosen for this day in order to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision to remove homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
According to the IDAHO website, the first small IDAHO events were organized in places like China and Bulgaria. . . . --Steve Williams.
 Why should there be an International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia; Because-->
To Demonize Gay Marriage, Pat Buchanan Flip-Flops On Slavery 
 
And Because-->Teacher Allegedly Mocked Student & His Trans Prom Date 

And Because-->GOP Kills Colorado Civil Unions in Special Session

Enough Said--I hope. After all, If these are not enough evidence of why An International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia are needed then I do not know what more can be said or shown.
