Celebrating IDAHOTB

By Mbabazi Louis | Project Leader

 

The International  Day Against  Homophobia,  Transphobia  and Biphobia marked on 17th May  is  very important to celeberate and promote the rights of the LGBQ community

LGBTI individuals  and LGBTQ organizations in Rwanda continue to face discrimination, inadequate protection, and lack of respect for their fundamental rights.         

The LGBTQ commmunity in Rwanda  started  to celebrate the IDAHOT day since 2012 though its not  officially  recognized  by the Government  of Rwanda. IDAHOT celebration  in Rwanda has awakened and helped Rwanda LGBTQ community  to achieve different milestones  including  the creation of ISANGE-RWANDA which  is an informal  umbrella  of LGBTIQ community  based groups in Rwanda, extending  partnership  erent  partners 

It is in this regards that Human Rights First Rwanda and its partners have been organizing  this event annually to show case the plight of the LGBTQ community, promote their wellbeing,promote LGBTQ Human rights and encourage the solidarity  of the LGBTIQ community  in Rwanda. We believe through  such celebration where Rwandan LGBTQ community stands side by side and  join the rest of the World, will  foster greater activism  and solidarity  for LGBTQ community  acceptance in Rwanda.
