17th of May was chosen to commemorate the decision to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.

IDAHOT in the Netherlands

On IDAHOT also Dutch LGBTI community organisations and main stream organisations  take action.
This website and it’s connected social media offer a platform for  these  organisations.  On it you will find information on what homo/bi/transphobia is, how people can get involved in raising awareness in their own communities and celebrate diversity. Our agenda lists upcoming events around and on May 17th in the Netherlands.

IDAHOT activities take place on all continents in over 120 countries. For our non Dutch speaking visitors we refer to the English IDAHOT websites:
