AbstractSixteen years ago, Louis Georges Tin, advocate for Black and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) rights, launched an appeal for universal recognition of May 17 as the International Day Against Homophobia to honour the World Health Organization’s decision to remove homosexuality from their list of mental disorders in 1990. Over time, the movement has grown and made explicit its relevance to all people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expression and sex characteristics. May 17 is now commemorated as the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same‐sex acts are illegal.
