Why the Day Against Homophobia is commemorated on May 17
The Day Against Homophobia is commemorated on May 17 worldwide. The date was chosen because on May 17, 1990, the World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses.
This day’s main historical objective is to give rise to actions that denounce discrimination against homosexual, bisexual and transsexual people, and thus expand their rights throughout the world.
