Every year, Fondation Émergence launches an awareness raising campaign for May 17th, International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT).
Through the years, we have tackled issues such as LGBT rights in the world, transgender identity, families, but also homophobia in sports, on the Internet and in the workplace, and a lot of others.
Remember : this day would not exist without people celebrating it !
See what YOU CAN DO this May 17th
Over the years, we have developed awareness tools on a multitude of issues and in different formats: guides, posters, pamphlets, stickers.
All our material is FREE, enjoy!
Our material is also available in digital format on this website. Check out the pages of the issue that interest you to download the awareness raising material related to it.
This program (only available in French for now) is designed to reach LGBT caregivers to support them, to educate them about existing services and to help them develop knowledge that will be useful to them in their role.

This award is presented annually to a person who stood out by fighting against homophobia and transphobia during their career. Two other prizes are awarded at a ceremony: The Allied Award and the Coup de Coeur Award.
