As part of a Public Health Masters, I’ve spent 12 months exploring evidence related to sociocultural barriers faced by lgbtqi+ people when participating in community sport. My critical review was submitted last month. Here’s a 🧵on practical things I thought it useful to share..
1/ There are many brilliant people, including academics in this space who will know much of this already. Many of you are now my role models! Too many to name but thank you @DrRyanStorr @LindsayDuncan9 @sscherrick for your work in this area so far!
2/ There is lots to cover, including needing to be nuanced in approach. There’s also a lot not touched on below - for obvious and, not so obvious reasons. I did this is in my personal capacity - worth stressing these are my views and interpretation of insight.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is an opportunity to join together in condemning the vile hate that still threatens the safety, well-being and fulfillment of our LGBTQ friends, neighbors and loved ones. #IDAHOBIT
Today, and every day, we recommit to rooting out discrimination. That fight remains as urgent as ever, as right-wing forces target trans students, Republican leaders threaten to unwind marriage equality and a radical Supreme Court takes aim at Americans’ most fundamental rights.
Many LGBTQ Americans continue to fear for their jobs, their homes and their lives. @HouseDemocrats have long been proud to combat this inhuman bigotry alongside courageous LGBTQ leaders and advocates. We remain unwavering in our commitment to the continued struggle for justice.

Here's the agenda for this evening's council meeting, which begins at 7pm. Get the full package here, watch live at, or follow along here 👇
Council is reconvening in open session, following an earlier closed meeting (which started at 5pm).

Mayor Armstrong begins with a moment's reflection for the #IDAHOBIT2021, and he talks about inclusion and feeling welcome.
Coun Hallman reads the land acknowledgment. A modified version has been read by the women councillors at recent meetings, and it reflects the fact that the meeting is virtual. Coun Hallman also refers to #IDAHOBIT.

1./ Someone asked me today if I was marking #IDAHOBIT2021. Seriously!? Here's why this daft sounding day against homophobia, transphobia and who knows what else phobia is a useless backslapping exercise and a perfect example of the trap the LGBTQ+ movement has locked itself in.
2./ Remember when gay people used to be quite good at this marketing game? Now we're associated with an international day that has the general public sniggering and guffawing since it conjures up nothing more than a certain movie filmed in New Zealand.👇
3./ Ironically, like the title of that trailer IDAHOBIT has gone on an Unexpected Journey of its own. Dreamed up by Lesbian & Gay groups in 2004, May 17th was chosen because that was the day in 1990 when @WHO dropped HOMOSEXUALITY from its list of diseases. Remember the H word?

There is no liberation without queer, gender, and sexual liberation.

For #IDAHOBIT, reposting this from March 6, 2020, when dear friend #Egyptian drag queen Ana Masreya invited me to speak at her show Nefertitties. It was just before our lockdown in #NYC.
May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia, and Transphobia.
📷 @theyouthpact
The club in Brooklyn that night in 2020 was full of queer people from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Morocco, Jordan. And on stage with Ana Masreya were Mexican queen Koko Rokoko and Palestinian queen Eva Laurent. It was 🔥🔥🔥

Thank you ana_toumeh for 🎥

Ich möchte den heutigen #IDAHOBIT nutzen, um noch einmal auf Mittwoch aufmerksam zu machen: Es geht um die Abschaffung des TSG und die Einführung eines Selbstbestimmungsgesetzes in Deutschland. Die Grünen, FDP und Linke sind aktuell dafür; die Union und AfD dagegen.
Die SPD wäre gerne dafür (jedenfalls laut eigener Aussagen), aber kann es angeblich nicht in der Abstimmung zeigen, weil Koalitionszwang. Schickes Wort. Doch was bedeutet das eigentlich?
In meinem Verständnis muss die SPD sich an den Koalitionsvertrag halten.
Hier wird argumentiert, man könne nicht für den Entwurf stimmen, weil die CDU dagegen stimmen wird. Das ist eine doppelte Ausrede, da erstens eine solche Pflicht nirgends steht und zweitens im K.-Vertrag vermerkt ist, dass eine Verbesserung der Situation queerer Menschen erreicht

Heute ist der Int. Tag gegen Homo- Trans-, Bi- und Interfeindlichkeit. In dieser Recherche zeigen wir, wie viel Hass und Gewalt LGBT*s im Alltag noch immer erleben und ich wünsche mir, dass in 🇩🇪 noch viel mehr über dieses Thema gesprochen wird

650 Personen, hunderte gewaltsame Übergriffe, kaum Anzeigen bei der Polizei.

Hier sind die harten Zahlen aus einer bundesweiten Umfrage, die wir zu dem Thema gemacht haben.
Warum wir das gemacht haben? Weil die offiziellen Zahlen des BMI's so niedrig und irreführend sind, dass man sie einfach falsch nennen kann. Hassgewalt gegen LGBT*s wird systematisch kaum erfasst, und wenn es kein Problembewusstsein gibt, kann auch nicht dagegen gekämpft werden.

Six years ago, when I was Equalities Minister, I was due to attend a celebration of #IDAHOBIT with Ministers from a dozen EU countries (THREAD) #FlashbackFriday IDAHOBIT
My colleague @lfeatherstone , who was leading the efforts on the Same Sex Marriage Bill, had initiated a document that called for action on LGBT+ rights, which was to be signed by the Ministers at this event. Copy of signed pledge for LGBT+ rights
The Conservatives were copied in all along as the doc was drafted & didn’t bat an eyelid. Then, suddenly just 3 days before I was due to travel…
