International Day Against Homophobia

Tuesday, May 17 

International Day Against Homophobia is all about raising awareness that being a homosexual is okay and that being a homosexual doesn't mean you're unlike anyone else.

You should be accepted just as everyone else is. 

Homosexuality is not a sickness, and it's not contagious. 
Allow homosexuals to feel accepted, to be themselves as everyone else is. 
Help end homophobia. We have to raise awareness for this cause. 

in 2010 everyone wore black shirts.
This year we are going to wear red glow sticks around our necks. 
People will ask about it which means we will be able to spread the word, also its easier!

We did it in 2010, lets make it even bigger this year!

I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND

The Rainbow Resource Centre will be holding an awareness and education campaign on Tuesday, May 17, 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm at Osborne Junction/Confusion Corner (Osborne Street and McMillan Avenue), in recognition of the International Day Against Homophobia. 

Inspired by London’s “A Day in Hand” Project, we’ll be holding hands - let’s make queer love and affection visible!

We invite members of the community, agencies, organizations, businesses to join us! 

We will be holding hands, signs and banners to generate awareness on issues regarding homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
