To Proudly Go Marks International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

Each year, May 17 marks International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. It 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.

Still, more than one-third of all countries criminalize same-sex relationships. LGBTQI people face prejudice, discrimination, stigma, hostility, violence. They are denied legal protections, essential health care, civil and human rights, including a right to bodily autonomy when forced to go through medical treatment or needless surgery.

Queer rights are human rights and To Proudly Go supports this international day of awareness and stands with our LGBTQIA+ community across the world. To learn more about To Proudly Go Marks International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, please visit https://may17.org.
