“In our families, in our social circles, at work, in our sports clubs, for many of us our Sexualities, Gender Identities or Sex Characteristics must be hidden. We wander through most of our lives with the stigma of feeling ashamed of who we are.
On May 17, the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia will be breaking some of that silence. This year again, tens of thousands of us will speak up. We will take the space that is rightfully ours, because our voices, our stories, our lived realities matter!
By all coming together on one global day, our “noise” will be so loud that all our LGBTQI+++ sisters and brothers all over the world who cannot speak up will hear the sound of hope and solidarity.
Join the global noise! Make your voice heard on May 17, 2020
The Day is not one single campaign. It is a moment when thousands of ideas and initiatives converge over a single vision: freedom and equality for all sexual, gender and bodily minorities.
You can join in whichever way you want: shout out on your social media, organise an event near you, contact your local LGBTQI++ organisation to see what they have planned, call on your local authority to get them to celebrate the Day, decorate your office, organise a movie night, etc. Be creative, this is YOUR day!”
