More than 130 countries around the world carry out this celebration. In the year 1990, the World Health Organization eliminated homosexuality from the list of mental disorders, representing a great step for this sector of the population.
For many years, the LGBTTTIQ collective has been fighting for the recognition and defense of their rights, to live without prejudice, in order to develop in a world with a culture of equality, without fear of expressing themselves.
Within the framework of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, various activities were organized to commemorate this important date, so that people can freely talk about who they are and who they love.
Since the world is in social isolation, thousands of collective institutions have decided to mobilize through social networks to make their work visible for respect and inclusion.
Internet users are using the hashtag #DiaContralaLGTBIfobia to express their ideas and share some experiences of violence, discrimination or testimonies of overcoming despite adversity.
