International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 17 of May, repeating indefinitely
The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia & Transphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally. In under a decade, May 17 has established itself the single most important date for LGBTI communities to mobilise on a worldwide scale.
