Today, May 17th, is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (also known as IDAHO). Groups around the world will be celebrating the day in various ways and you can follow it all through the IDAHO page: http://www.dayagainsthomophobia.org/
We, right around 130 writers, publishers, reviewers, and cover designers of LGBT books want to make an effort as well by sharing messages with our readers and other blog visitors. This is the hop's third year, and in both our prior years we've had huge success in reaching a diverse group of people around the globe. We've decided to do it again, because there's no sense messing with success, right? We encourage you to visit all the hop locations. There will be an LGBT-related prize at each stop.
From the all volunteer staff here at HAHAT, we want to take a moment to extend our gratitude to all who have donated, be it in time, prizes to give away on their blogs, or simply the courage to stand up for what we here at HAHAT believe to be an invaluable message of acceptance.
