On the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT), observed on May 17, fourteen embassies in Croatia called for supporting the struggle of all people to enjoy equal rights regardless of their identity, said the Canadian Embassy in a press release.

The Day is aimed at drawing the attention of the public, media, and authorities to the discrimination that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people face in the modern society.

This year’s global theme is Alliance for Solidarity, and will focus on the need for solidarity among various minorities, as one group can not ensure their rights if another group’s rights are neglected or violated.

The embassies of Canada and Chile, co-chairs of the Equal Rights Coalition, called on the diplomatic community in Croatia to celebrate the Day, and 12 embassies in Croatia accepted the invitation, joining forces with Rainbow Families, a Croatian NGO which provides support for LGBTQ couples and individuals.

Equal human rights, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, are IDAHOT’s main objective, and we recognise that Croatia, too, is a partner country in advancing LGBT rights, said the Canadian Embassy.
