We possess a profound ability to shape our children's attitudes and beliefs, embedding values of acceptance, inclusivity and respect for all.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), celebrated each year on 17 May, emphasises the critical need to educate children about diversity and inclusivity. Inaugurated in 2004 by the World Health Organization, this day is a global call to promote tolerance and combat discrimination against the LGBTIQ+ community.

Instilling respect and acceptance for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in children is crucial. Celebrating IDAHOBIT helps families communicate a strong stance against discrimination, highlighting the importance of diversity and the damaging effects of stereotypes and biases. These prejudices often arise from the media, societal interactions and peer influences, necessitating proactive efforts from parents and caregivers to counteract and discuss these issues.

Creating inclusive environments supports diversity and plays a vital role in raising awareness and demonstrating solidarity with LGBTIQ+ students and community members. It is a commitment to creating a world free from prejudice and discrimination, instilling values of empathy, respect and inclusivity.

This SchoolTV Special Report will help foster acceptance and empower young people to become compassionate and informed advocates for equality.
