  • A world-wide celebration of sexual and gender diversity
  • May 17 is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal, with 1600 events reported from 1280 organizations in 2014. These mobilisations unites 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, Transphobia and Biphobia is not one centralised campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of, to take action.
