IDAHO 2011: Fragility

IDAHO Sydney offers you art to go with the ideas of the International Day Against Homophobia.

Around the world, IDAHO is a big event.  The International Day Against Homophobia and transphobia (IDAHO) reminds you how far LGBTI rights have come in some places, and how far they have to go in others. IDAHO asks you to do something big or small to oppose homophobia on May 17, the anniversary of the day homosexuality was declassified as a disorder in the influential psychiatric diagnostic manual DSM. There are activities, festivities and demonstrations of support going on all around Sydney — on Uni campuses, galleries, across Sydney's west and even at Parliament House. At Pine Street Creative Arts Studio in Chippendale, IDAHO Sydney is putting on its annual IDAHO exhibition, Fragility.

Changing the way people do things is hard. If you'd like to start your thousand-mile journey with a simpler footstep, IDAHO Sydney's exhibition draws together art from across the queer and queer-friendly community. This year, as well as the art, IDAHO is calling out for stories. At the exhibition itself Pride History will be collecting queer oral histories on May 21. You can go in any day to get a look at the art, and if you go in Saturday the 21st you get a chance to be part of history in the bargain.
