IDAHO 2009: Proud to be Gay All Around the World

Sunday was the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). The theme was One Voice, One Message, Heard Around the World.

This amazing IDAHO video was a community project to show that "gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people are just like everyone else. We come from all over the world and we come in all shapes and sizes and colours. We want to send this message to the people of the world in every language."

Visit IDAHO 2009 for photos and news from Sunday's events, including Russian marchers being arrested. Then sign the International Appeal to Reject Transphobia and to Respect Gender Identity.

what a great video-except for the blurred out face of the Iraqi gent who lives in a country where they still hunt down gays and do a very nasty form of sad this is our version of bringing democracy to this the way I'm proud to be gay also
