Friday 17 May

Clapham Library

91 Clapham High St, SW4 7DB

International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) is marked every year around the world since 2005 and calls for respect for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) people worldwide. It marks the date that homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organisation on May 17th 1992.

This year’s celebration is over shadowed by the suicidal economic austerity program being dogmatic purposed in the UK and Europe that is among other things undermining the health services across Europe.

Come hear what is happening, how it affects LGB&T people and how we can work to resist the cuts.

Speakers include:

Zoe Mavroudi  – Film Maker

Jordan Rivera – Keep Our NHS Public

Joseph Healy  – Queers Against the Cuts, Greek Solidarity Campaign – recently returned from a solidarity visit to Greece

Nacho Diaz – Four in Ten (LGBT mental health service users’ group)
