HAVE YOUR SAY: International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia 2012
Thursday, May 17, is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) and this year Care2 is bringing you personal stories from around the world on the state of LGBT rights and the fight to free everyone from anti-LGBT prejudice and discrimination.
But of course we want to hear from you, our amazing Care2 readers.
None of us could fail to be touched by the continuing rash of suicides that plague our young people, many related to anti-LGBT bullying.
So, in the lead up to IDAHOT, we want to know:
If there was an LGBT or questioning kid sitting in front of you right now who was having to deal with anti-LGBT discrimination in their home-life or at school, what would you say to her? What would you want him to know?
Let us know by commenting below. We’ll pick out some of our favorite answers to highlight in a separate post, so please share your wisdom.
And, of course, make sure to look out for all the wonderful IDAHOT stories to come!
