Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia! (and my birthday!)

From the United Nations:

United Nations release fantastic IDAHOT fight song!

The video, titled ‘Why We Fight”, has been produced as part of the ongoing OHCHR-led UN Free & Equal campaign. Conceived as a tribute to activism, the video brings together footage shot by activists and allies in more than 20 countries as well as at UNHQ in New York and reflects the diversity of organizations and causes that people are fighting for in different countries around the world. Singer-songwriter Rachel Platten is supporting the campaign and lent her hit “Fight Song” as the soundtrack. Please share widely!

Hatred against the GLBT persists around the world, even in the US it is rearing its ugly head in the forms of anti-gay legislation, anti-transgender "bathroom bills", and all around rancid hate-filled acts!

Celebrate by speaking out against hate, fear, intimidation, and lies leveled against the LGBT community! Celebrate by letting that special LGBT person(s) in your life, know you love them!

9. Thank you!

I can think of two more B-day gifts I'd like tonight!

Did you get a chance to watch the video? It isn't long and it is nice to representatives from around the world, even small ones.

16. Thanks!

I found it when I was reading another website and saw the new UN video. If I can dangle my birthday and get some attention to it (and me), then all is right with the world!

23. Thank you, thank you!

Cold and windy here in Oklahoma. The cold is out of place. But this is also important because things like this are happening...

Muslim states block 11 LGBT groups from attending UN Aids meeting
