Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

Posted on the 19/05/21

May 17 was International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. The European Humanist Federation stands in solidarity with every person experiencing and suffering from the effects of homophobic, transphobic and biphobic behaviours. Human dignity begins with accepting everyone’s right to love who they choose to love and be who they choose to be. 

Also, the risk for LGBTI community members to be exposed to violence and abuse has increased dramatically during the pandemic, due to the fact that for some social distancing and isolation meant being stuck in a hostile environment without the option to escape to safe spaces when in need. The access to safe spaces is essential for people with diverse sexual orientation and gender identity, to protect them from violence, harassment and discrimination. LGBTI rights are human rights. And all crimes committed against members of the LGBTI community, all levels of violence – from verbal discrimination to physical abuse – are unacceptable and dismiss human dignity.
