14 May May 17 International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
May 17 is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and this day was created in 2003 as an initiative of the Fondation Émergence. Each year, the Foundation organizes an awareness campaign centred upon specific themes. This year’s theme is “For Some, Showing Their Colours Isn’t a Choice” and deals with the violence inflicted upon LGBTQ+ people around the world.
On Saturday May 15, Le Devoir will publish a special section to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. The Quebec Gay Archives celebrate this initiative and support any action which aims to educate the public on the reality of LGBTQ+ lives.
