Council supports IDAHOT Day though social media campaign

Article date - 10 May 2017

St Helens Council will once again lend its support to IDAHOT Day - the international day against homophobia, transphobia and biphobia – by running a social media campaign which encourages Twitter and Facebook users to share messages on why the day is so important.

IDAHOT Day on 17 May is a worldwide celebration of sexual and gender diversities.

As part of its long-running No Pace for Hate campaign, the council will from today (10 May), send out two ‘May17Because’ picture messages a day for the next week on its corporate social media pages, and then three on IDAHOT Day itself, on the 17 reasons why IDAHOT Day is so important.


Look out for ‘May17Because’ posts, and show your support by sharing them, by following St Helens Council on Twitter  – or via the council’s Facebook page.
