International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBiT), May 17th

May 08, 2023

Rainbow flag

May 17th is IDAHOBiT – International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. It is important to recognise that on this day, and every other, we continue to fight for safe, affirming and culturally appropriate support, as well as raise awareness for the work that is still desperately needed to combat discrimination. 

To show our support, TAFE SA will be hosting a range of activities and awareness sessions. Students and staff are welcome to attend to learn more about how we can stand against discrimination.
