Blue Mountains IDAHOBIT


BM International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) is a Project held every year organised by a committee of community volunteers and peer organisations to address prejudice in the community towards the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer people and other sexuality and gender diverse people) community.


MOCS is the secretariat organisation for Blue Mountains IDAHOBIT.
IDAHOBIT was launched in 2004, internationally, to champion inclusion and diversity and celebrate LGBTQI+ people globally.

On 17 May each year, the Blue Mountains community comes together with support from Blue Mountains City Council, to mark IDAHOBIT, as a day to educate the wider community on how to fight prejudice against the LGBTQI+ community.

Blue Mountains City Council is one of the few councils that proudly raise the Rainbow Flag in support of the LGBTQI+ community for IDAHOBIT.

Currently, the IDAHOBIT Committee is made up of MOCS, Blue Mountains City Council, MYST, BMWHRC, Lives Lived Well, DV West, WSU and ACON representatives.
