May 17 International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
Since 2005, May 17th has been dedicated to the International Day Against Homophobia, and Transphobia, marking the day in 1990 when the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
It constitutes an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision-makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders, and local authorities to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBT2QI+ people internationally.
May 17 is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. These mobilizations unite millions of people in support of the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity, or expression.
The International Day Against Homophobia, and Transphobia is not one centralized campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of to take action.
