May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Why this particular date? Because it was as of May 17, 1990 [just 32 years ago] that homosexuality was no longer considered a mental illness by the Wordl Health Organization. Promoting #mentalhealth in the community means taking action for an inclusive society that cares for everyone’s well-being. Let’s adopt inclusive language and not be indifferent to the realities of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, psychological distress, and stigmatizing behaviour.
