IDAHOBIT is fast approaching, and we are bringing the celebrations to the University of the Sunshine Coast!
Celebrate all genders and sexualities at USC during this free two day event! Come watch some films and learn about what you can do for LGBTIQ+ rights in Australia, and around the world.
IDAHOBIT, or the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia was created in 2004 to raise awareness of the violence and discrimination LGBTIQ+ people face all around the world. This day also celebrates and recognises that everyone should enjoy rights, regardless of gender or sexuality.
