Something inside so strong
IDAHOT celebrates the declaration of the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization on 17 May 1999 that homosexuality was no longer classified as an illness. It was launched in 2004, as a global commemoration of that day. The theme of the 2015 IDAHOT was LGBTI youth. Across the globe, countries planned coordinated events dealing with the right to a safe environment, where members of the LGBTI community are free to express their individual personalities and talents. The IDAHOT2015 commemorations in Bloemfontein focused on issues affecting LGBTI youth in particular on transgender identity, an identity that is complex and little understood.
