The University in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine and Health will be marking IDAHOBIT 2019 with a series of talks and information sessions. We hope you can join us.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBiT) is celebrated annually in over 130 countries on 17th May. The day is designed to raise awareness and acknowledge that while progress has been made, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people still face prejudice and discrimination across the World today.

The University will be marking the day with a series of talks and information sessions including sessions on personal trans experience (tbc), West Yorkshire Queer Stories and heteronormativity and homophobia through words, images and the body. The University’s LGBTQ+ staff network and the University’s Equality Policy Unit (EPU) will also be talking about their roles and the policy framework.

The talks will begin at noon and the event will close at 2pm. Lunch will be provided.

To book a place please register via Eventbrite.

Further information about the event can be found in the Equality Policy Unit website.
