The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia ("IDAHO" -- no jokes, please, otherwise UDAHO) is May 17th. Gays.com wants you to take up the challenge, that is: send them a video! From the website:
The Idaho Challenge is a community project by Gays.com to produce a user-generated video to be released 17 May 2009, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). While 67 countries have signed the new United Nations statement to decriminalise homosexuality worldwide, anti-gay discrimination remains a reality in many parts of the world. This year, with your help, we want to create a video that sends out the message that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people are just like everyone else. We come from all over the world and we come in all shapes and sizes and colours. And we want to send this message to the people of the world in every language that's out there!
Full disclosure: Gays.com actually contacted me on Twitter (theirs and mine) specifically requesting that this get posted -- because they want Cincinnatians to be part of the movement!!!
So, if you want to take the IDAHO CHALLENGE (and I will be!), post your video on their site, then give me a heads up, and we will feature every Cincinnatian who chooses to participate!
