International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia: AMARC calls on its members to share thematic programs

- World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC)

14/05/2015

Montreal, May 13, 2015. For 10 years, the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) has mobilized the public opinion around the world on May 17 on issues related to homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. Every year on this day, millions of people in over 130 countries raise their voices to denounce the injustices that persist and support the recognition of human rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Discrimination, exclusion and violence against sexual and gender minorities are a source of concern. Deeply rooted in their communities and agents of social change, community radio stations play a role of education and advocacy in raising public awareness on the importance of openness to difference. In addition, these radios are working to ensure fair representation of gender and minorities on the airwaves to promote inclusion and tolerance for all. That is why, this year again, the  World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) invite its members to participate in large numbers in the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia by sharing thematic contents.

The audio productions will be added on AMARC's website where they will be available for streaming and downloading. In addition, the productions will benefit from a visibility campaign on social networks and in the network of partners and supporters of AMARC to mark this important day.

How to send your programs?

Please send your audio productions as soon as possible through to We Transfer  to  secretariat@si.amarc.org  accompanied by a short description and the logo of your radio. This information will be used to promote your production.

If you are struggling to make the transfer of documents or if you have any questions, please contact the International secretariat.

Thank you for your contribution to this important campaign.
