Protect LGBT Free Expression!

Right now people around the world are increasingly being silenced because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. In spite of some advances, a majority of the world’s population live in countries with laws that criminalise LGBT identities and ban sharing information and ideas about sexual orientation or gender identity.

Repressive legislation, intimidation and violence restrict the right to free expression of LGBT people and all those who speak out on LGBT issues.

Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right regardless of sexuality or gender.

On 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), ARTICLE 19, IDAHO Committee and IFEX are launching a Thunderclap to join thousands of voices together to demand that these freedom of expression rights be respected.

Join the Thunderclap. Add your voice to the social media storm for LGBT rights this May 17.

Together, we will demand that freedom of expression of LGBT people is fully respected. We will call for an end to the culture of violence and intimidation that leads to the self-censorship of LGBT people and of the media and the rejection of discriminatory legislation that criminalises discussion of issues affecting LGBT people end.

Around the world thousands of people will be taking to the streets and the internet on 17 May to demand respect for everyone’s right to free expression, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

This IDAHOT day let’s stand shoulder to shoulder with others around the world.

Join the Thunderclap today!
