The Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia (HAHAT) was created to spread awareness of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and to stand together as a writer community against discrimination of our works.
There is a website with more information here:
The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
I have a phobia. It's one that a lot of people share. Arachnophobia was what I labelled it when I was younger. Those moments where you freeze in abject fear when you see the scuttling legs and the yucky bodies hurtling towards you. It's irrational, especially in the UK when there aren't really any killer spiders. What I really have is a hatred of spiders. The way they look, the way they run, the way they hide in washing.
I can't understand why the word phobia is even connected to the hatred that is often found towards things we don't like or understand.
Homophobia isn't a phobia… it's an excuse and justification for hatred.
