International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia
On May 17th we celebrate the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. This idea was implemented in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
Our organization actively supports the #LGBTQ+ community and the Anti-Homophobic movement by participating in the 𝐔𝐍𝐈𝐐𝐔𝐄 and 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 projects.
➡️UNIQUE Project aims at reversing the perceptions and attitudes towards LGBTIQ learners in VET Sector by introducing innovative, inclusive and gender-sensitive training materials for VET Teachers/Trainers as well as educating them in safeguarding and promoting a non-discriminatory classroom.
