Since 17th May, 1990, by decision of the General Assembly of the World Health Organization, homosexuality is no longer considered a mental illness. And since 2003, they officially began to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO). On this day, we express our support and solidarity to LGBT communities around the world.
On April 17, 2019, the SCORA Standing Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Health, and Rights including HIV and AIDS, held an event timed to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia.
The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of this holiday and draw attention to the problems of discrimination of people on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.
During the event, a presentation was presented, which included the history, goals and statistics of the attempts made against the background of hatred towards LGBT representatives. After the presentation, the audience was shown a video interview, which was filmed by the activists of the committee in order to clarify the attitude of the population of the city of Semey to sexual minorities. Pamphlets on this topic were also distributed to each visitor. The final link of the event was a survey.
The event was held in a free form, during which attendees could ask questions of interest.
