May 17: International Day Against Homophobia Biphobia and Transphobia

The International Day Against Homophobia Biphobia and Transphobia is observed every year on May 17. This year will be no different except for ceremonies and events being held virtually.

As PSAC’s Atlantic Director for LGBTQ2+ members, I ask that you take part in a virtual event or learn more on how you can become an ally and play a role in eradicating homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

As Trans members continue to be at the forefront of the struggle for equality, we as Canadians can be proud of the achievements that we take in the steps of our LGBTQ2+ communities, but we recognize that a lot more needs to be accomplished in order to make society a safe place for all.

On May 17, please take a stand in support of the rights of LGBTQ2+ people. Together with collective efforts as PSAC members across Canada, we can achieve dignity, equality and provide a safer space for all LGBTQ2+ members. We can and will make a difference.

Stay safe.

With pride and solidarity,
