The 17th May will be International Day Against Homophobia. The idea is to push for the universal de-criminalisation of homosexuality.

If you’re in the UK you might like to sign this petition.

On the 17th May 2007, an International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO), will again be campaigning for Governments across the World to petition the UN to bring forward a UN Resolution for Decriminalisation of Homosexuality.

In this day and age there are nearly 80 countries in the world where it is a criminal offence to be homosexual. A resolution is proposed by Louis Georges Tin, the President of the IDAHO Committee for the UN to have a Universal Decriminalisation of Homosexuality to protect individuals’ human rights.

We ask the United Nations :

To request a universal abolition of the so-called “crime of homosexuality”, of all “sodomy laws”, and laws against so-called “unnatural acts” in all the countries where they still exist.

We ask Tony Blair, to support the resolution, and ask him to bring the resolution to the United Nations next year as a supportive country.

The link to the petition goes to the “you are now signed up” page; I think the one you want is the same thing without the last part (/?etc.)

Ok. Think I’ve fixed it.
