May 17th – International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia


May 17th (today) has since 2004, established itself the single most important date for LGBTI communities to mobilise internationally, to highlight  the struggles faced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms.

May 17th was chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.

GMB strives to promote equality at all levels, not just in the workplace and as such is proud to champion gender equality.
