The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBiT) is celebrated annually in over 130 countries on 17th May. The day is designed to raise awareness and acknowledge that while progress has been made, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people still face prejudice and discrimination across the world today.
The University will be marking the day with a series of talks and information sessions, including sessions on personal trans experience (tbc), West Yorkshire Queer Stories/MESMAC and heteronormativity and homophobia through words, images and the body. The University’s LGBT+ Staff Network and the University’s Equality & Inclusion Unit (EPU) will also be talking about their roles and the policy framework.
The talks will begin at 12pm and the event will close at 2pm. Lunch will be provided.
A final agenda is available.
We hope you can join us.
