A special event to recognize The International day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia


Following this year's theme for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and
Biphobia (IDAHOT), "Our Bodies, Our Lives, Our Rights", the United Nations LGBTI Core
Group will host an event at UN Headquarters to feature discussions with various stakeholders to
speak about the bodily autonomy of LGBTI persons and the full realization of their rights. The
event will highlight best practices when it comes to addressing existing barriers to LGBTI bodily
autonomy including policies and regulations aimed at banning so-called conversion practices,
unnecessary surgical interventions on intersex children, as well as policies related to health
services, such as hormonal therapy, and avenues to gain legal gender recognition to trans persons.
Member States, UN Agencies and civil society will also discuss existing challenges and
opportunities to promote and protect the rights of LGBTI persons.
