IDAHOT – Swiss International Air Lines

by loloelen

A couple of weeks before we had the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) and  an announcement of Swiss International Air Lines drew my attention to.

More specifically, Swiss stated “Today we celebrate the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT).  At SWISS , we strive a culture of inclusion, where every employee feels proud of being him- or herself.  Embracing diversity and providing equal opportunities for our employees continue to be priorities of us, regardless the circumstances we may find ourselves in.”

I found it so beautiful, inspirational and proper for humanity and human rights and, unfortunately so far away from other countries’ and companies’ attitudes.

This short statement presents the condign core of our rumination for community, people, ourselves.  Imagine a world thinking and acting as SWISS stated, how safe, secure and mostly with no surprises and bad emotions for each other our life would be?

For your information, the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is observed on May 17 and aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work worldwide. By 2016, the commemorations had taken place in 132 countries across the globe.

The founders of the International Day Against Homophobia, as it was originally known, established the IDAHO Committee to coordinate grass-roots actions in different countries, to promote the day and to lobby for official recognition on May 17.  That date was chosen to commemorate the decision to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.

It would be great if we all reconsider who we are and accept that there is no difference between us cause of nature!
