The Walk With Pride project is partnering with the IDAHO Committee (organizers of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) to organize a global exhibition in over 15 cities around the world in recognition of IDAHO day on May 17, 2011. This includes an exhibition to be held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

The ‘Walk With Pride’ project has a special message to share from the IDAHO Sydney organization.
Hi - Nick here from IDAHO Sydney in Australia with an invitation to participate in the 2011 STANDING TALL Catalogue we intend to put together for IDAHO 2011.
IDAHO is an acronym for International Day Against Homophobia – 17th of May world wide. Last year we created a catalogue titled ‘Break The Silence’ which included images from the exhibition and introductions form the living library books. This year we are not having a living library but I still think its important to represent and document the many different faces within our community. Its a great way to help people that feel isolated or are questioning their sexuality. They are not alone and they are not abnormal.
If you would like to participate all I need is one paragraph (100 to 150 words) from you which tells us about you. You can talk about anything you like. You could change someone’s life in one paragraph.
Also please tag your paragraph with your name, age and were you live (country). If you are not comfortable with using your name feel free to make one up. Also if you would like to extend the invitation to all your friends and family that would be great!
Together we can make a difference.
All the best
Nick Baldas – curator IDAHO Sydney
