1. Every week, one of our member equality bodies tweets through the Twitter account @equineteurope, to present the work of Equinet and its members through a mix of experiences and opinions from across Europe. Through the stories of the various curators, you will discover more about the day-to-day work of equality bodies and how they tackle discrimination in their country. This week, it's one of our Belgian members, Unia (Interfederal Centre for Equal Opportunities)!

  7. 17 May marks the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT). The Day represents an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders and local authorities to the alarming situation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms. The date was chosen in commemoration of the World Health Organisation’s decision to remove homosexuality from the list of mental disorders in 1990.
