Sunday 17 May is International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
It is an issue that is close to my heart as I’ve seen first hand several members of my family paying the price of prejudice. Fear rules them and that will never be ok with me.
An international celebration.
If you prefer books:
It is true and it is happening all over the world. Imagine being scared of going out to dinner with your partner, terrified of going on holidays in certain countries because of who you love. Picture a young teen frozen in terror at what his parents will say once he tells them he is different. And what is being different anyway? It would be very boring if we were all the same. As long as your liberties don’t affect my freedom then I say, please, be my guest.
Once we recognise it, together we can fight to end homophobia. Today (and every other day), let’s celebrate sexual and gender diversity.

Don’t forget, everyone is welcome at the library and if you or someone you know is struggling we have resources to help.
