The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia is an annual event celebrated every May 17. The day aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work. May 17 was the day that homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1990.
To raise awareness of IDAHO day and hate crime reporting centres in Calderdale a display was organised by the Cohesion and Equality Team at Northgate House. For a list of hate crime reporting centres visit here
