Getting involved

Fondation Émergence promotes the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and encourages organisations and individuals to highlight this event in their environment.

May 17th is a symbolic date for homosexual people. The World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders on May 17, 1990. In 2003, Fondation Émergence created the first national day against homophobia, which expanded to the international level in 2006. Finally, in 2014, Fondation Émergence added “transphobia” to the name of the day. Every year, the campaigns organized for this day help fight discrimination in our society.
