Today, the 17th of May, is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia.


The 17th of May has been recognised each year since 2004 as International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia. It was chosen to signify the importance that on the 17th of May 1990, the World Health Organisation made the decision to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
