International Day Against Transphobia and Homophobia May 17, Hungary

The Transvanilla Transgender Association orgnised an official event of IDAHO in Hungary about the transphobia within the LGB community in form of a workshop and discussion. It was about the general lack of visibility of trans people, including (or especially) in the “LGBT” community. There are people in the LGB community who seem not to accept trans people and their needs. Some of them may think that the T* community is far from the LGB movement, or even that their political goals and interest do not overlap. The apparent fear that the T* community jeopardizes social and political acceptance of gays and lesbians is a pressing issue that must be challenged. I took part in order to introduce the No Hate speech Movement and the campaign but i also highlighted the support and solidarity towards Transgender people by showing them the videos and various activities from the activists. They are not alone!“LGBT” community.
