GET INVOLVED

IDAHOT 2017 offers a great opportunity to show your support for the rights of LGBTI people. Here are some ways you could get involved this year.

Attend a session – hear about issues, learn about what is being done and be inspired to action!

The 2017 IDAHOT “We are a #RainbowFamily” celebration is packed with activities, from musical performances, photo exhibitions, a #RainbowFamily photo booth and art space, to a learning forum, frank discussions on LGBTI family life by celebrities and ambassadors as well as a special candlelight ceremony. The event is as diverse and vibrant as the community we’re here to celebrate and support – there is something to interest everyone, so bring your families, partners and friends and take part.
