IDAHOTB 2023 Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia Breakfast Fundraiser

May 16, 2023 (Vancouver, BC) – QMUNITY’s annual International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB) breakfast, presented by Vancity, will take place on the morning of May 17th, 2023 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

Now celebrating its 17th consecutive year, the event brings together government, corporate partners, and community members to raise awareness of the continued discrimination faced by 2SLGBTQIA+ communities worldwide, and in BC. Now more than ever, QMUNITY remains on high alert for increasing amounts and varying types of harm being aimed at members of our 2SLGBTQIA+communities in British Columbia.

This year’s event carries the meaning and intention of creating safer spaces for queer, trans, and Two-Spirit people to live their lives free from discrimination and hate. With a special spotlight on 2SLGBTQIA+ programs and services, this year’s event also sets sights on QMUNITY’s new building, soon to break ground at Davie & Burrard.

Funds raised on May 17 enable 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals to access needed programs and services every day of the year. Consider supporting QMUNITY in meeting the increasing demand for programs and services through a donation or monthly giving.

We give thanks to our Presenting Sponsor Vancity, an unwavering partner and supporter in our mission to improve the lives of every queer, trans, and Two-Spirit person living in BC. We’d also like to extend a special thanks to our new Champion Sponsor, Lawson Lundell, who has stepped up in support of our work and our mission.
