USC supports the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersex phobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally and is our commitment to raise awareness for the work that is still needed.

Here at USC, IDAHOBIT is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all individuals, regardless of their sexual or gender diversity, we are all united by a core set of values.

Join us and celebrate IDAHOBIT on Tuesday 17 May.

How you can celebrate:
