The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) is an annual global campaign aimed at raising awareness about the ongoing discrimination, violence, and marginalization faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and all diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics. The campaign seeks to celebrate diversity and advocate for the rights of LGBTQIA+ people.

DCAFS’ GLOW is a 2SLGBTQ+ social youth group that works to build self-esteem, a sense of connection to community, and pride about diverse sexual and gender identities.
