May 17: Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. In this 17th year, today's theme is: “Family support is essential: Send love to your LGBTQ+ relatives”. This theme highlights the importance of loving and accepting LGBTQ+ family members just as they are. Having the support of loved ones makes a big difference in an LGBTQ+ person’s happiness and development. Please show your support to your LGBTQ+ family members, whether they are children, parents, brothers, aunts, nephews, cousins or grandparents.
