International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia 2021
Monday 17th May is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia 2021.
The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
The day is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, and thousands of initiatives, big and small, are reported throughout the planet.
