How do you feel about biphobia

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

On May 17, 1990, the General Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) decided what was long overdue: to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses. May 17th was then proclaimed International Day Against Homophobia.

The Berlin-Brandenburg Lesbian and Gay Association and the Alliance against Homophobia call tomorrow, Thursday, May 17, 2018, at 4 p.m. to a rally at the Wittenbergplatz underground station, exit towards KaDeWe.

It was not until 1995 after reunification that Section 175 of the Criminal Code was abolished in Germany. Generations of gay men have been persecuted, discriminated against, jailed or even murdered because of their same-sex orientation and love. In the meantime, the German Bundestag has issued an official decision for this injustice and passed a rehabilitation law.

In the “Archive of Other Memories” of the Federal Magnus Hirschfeld Foundation, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, transgender, intersex and queer people report on their experiences.

Reinhard Naumann:

I support the appeal of the Federal Magnus Hirschfeld Foundation, 'Nobody ever wanted to hear our stories ... it is time they were told.', Because it is an important offer for contemporary witnesses.
