#IDAHOBIT 2022

Today is international Day against Homophobia and Transphobia! Did you know that...

  • In 69 countries homosexuality is still prosecuted, in 11 countries even the death penalty for lesbians and gays is threatened.
  • LGBTQI* people in Germany are almost three times more likely to experience depression and burnout than the rest of the population.
  • Not a single transgender character was depicted in any of the movies released by the major studios last year for the fourth year in a row.

Do you want to learn more about the history and the meaning of the Pride movement?


Watch the moving and insightful documentary State of Pride by Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein now and listen to a diverse range of LGBTQIA+ perspectives telling you about the change they would like to see in the world.
