May 17 is recognized as the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). The day marks the anniversary of the day in 1990 on which the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases. Click here for more information about IDAHO Day. And here's a fairly amazing video from the United Nations -- including Navi Pillay and Ban Ki-moon -- about building a world that is free and equal.
We also note that France this week becomes the 14th country in the world to recognize same-sex marriage.
