Flag-raising ceremony to raise awareness about sexual and gender diversity, in order to foster better understanding and acceptance, as well as to promote inclusion and celebrate diversity

Join us at ISS on 17 May - International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transfobia.

To commemorate this day we will honour those who are struggling for a world without homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

To this day, people who are non-cisgender and/or non-heterosexual all around the world are subject to varying degrees of discrimination, violence, and stigma. We take a stand against this not only today, but every day!

The ceremony will be followed by a small reception with drinks and snacks.
