Support - IDAHO 2010

Sponsored by the Talbot Inn

17th May 2010
Event held at the Talbot Inn

The Talbot Inn
High Street
GU23 6BB

The team at Gay Surrey would like to thank everyone for supporting our event last night


I am sure you would agree it was a very informative evening, the exhibitors were amazing, speakers inspirational and radical

It has been hailed as one of the most controversial events we have held since Gay Surrey was formed and we have only just begun

These events cannot continue without the ongoing support from the police, public authorities, companies, charities and the community and your kind donations

Last night Gay Surrey launched the GScoalition and Manifesto, setting the next year into play for “action” before the 5th year IDAHO event on the 17th May 2011

Gay Surrey have called for all authorities to supply within 7 days, 3 tangible goals for the manifesto and will have one year to fulfil them, the announcements and manifesto will be revealed on the 17th May 2011 at Surrey County Council – Kingston

Over the coming weeks we will keep you all posted on what will happen and how we and our partners plan to make change in surrey in less than one year

Supporting Civil Partnerships in Surrey


In a world where countries punish women, men and children because of their sexuality an International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) provides a platform for everyone to make a powerful statement to demand improvements for peoples quality of life Overseas and in the UK. 

On the 17th May 1990 the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders. Now IDAHO exists to provoke action to end Homophobia.


Throughout history and in a large part of the world today, LGBT have been under attack with constant pressure to remain "closeted" and removed from mainstream society. Every living person has a sexuality and this is part of who we are as individuals. Activities and events that help raise the profile of the existence of the UK and global LGBT community also help to demonstrate that sexuality does not make you less of a person.
