The UK Government has not sought input from the Scottish Executive in respect of the International Day against Homophobia (IDAHO). IDAHO was welcomed by Meg Munn, Deputy Minister for Women and Equality, who issued a statement of support.

The Executive is committed to tackling homophobic prejudice and discrimination and we are establishing a Forum to help us address negative attitudes to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Scotland.

As an employer, the Executive marked the day by issuing a notice to all staff, highlighting its significance and providing a link to the IDAHO website for further information.
