International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) and International Family Equality Day (IFED) are encouraging people to hold events between 7 May and 17 May to celebrate diversity and raise the visibility of rainbow families. ACON is offering small grants to 10 groups and organisations in NSW for events that focus attention on the impact that homophobia, transphobia and biphobia has on the health and wellbeing of LGBTI families.
Five metro and five regional events will each receive a $500 grant for events recognising the important day and promoting the message that LGBTI families need to be protected from homophobic and transphobic-motivated prejudice, harassment, violence and discrimination.
