Today “marks 16 years since the first International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB),” the Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a May 17 news release.
“In the intervening period, the United States has endeavored to reaffirm the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex persons. To be sure, we have encountered challenges and setbacks in our path toward inclusion, and our work is not yet complete.”
Blinken said the theme of this year’s IDAHOTB is “Together: Resisting, Supporting, Healing!”
