Sunday 17th. May 2009 is International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO).

To mark this important event in our calendar OutWest are holding a conference at the Watermans Centre, 40 High Street, Brentford, London TW8 ODS on Friday 15th. May to openly discuss Homophobic Hate Crime, its effect on people, where it happens and how we can combat it together.

OutWest will be using the conference to launch a brand new third party reporting initiative, online reporting on our website, flyers with a peel off credit card size attachment giving our numbers and those of the Hate Crime Teams in the seven London Boroughs where our membership is based (Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hammersmith & Fulham, Hounslow, Hillingdon and Richmond upon Thames)

More exciting is the production of a hard copy, third party reporting form which will have a FREEPOST address, this will be available in Libraries, Doctors surgeries, Council buildings etc. as well as the usual LGBT venues. As well as this, we will also be setting up a dedicated number to receive SMS text messages.

The proposed format for the day is:

9.45 Registration

10.30 Welcome

10.35 Opening address

10.45 Keynote speakers( speakers to be confirmed)

11.45 Q&A’s from the floor
