International Lesbian Day

International Lesbian Day celebrates lesbian culture, community and visibility.

IDL dates back to New Zealand activism and is considered to be first celebrated on March 8th, 1980 by a group of 40 lesbians who marched through Wellington Park, New Zealand on International Women’s Day.

International Lesbian Day is marked annual on October 8th because it’s exactly six months after International Women’s Day on March 8th.

    National Coming Out Day

    Started in 1988 by Rob Eichberg and Jean O’Leary in celebration of the second March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights on Oct. 11, 1987. In the 1980s, when many people did not know any openly LGBT2Q+ people, ignorance and silence allowed homophobia to persist. Coming out was a form of activism and it was believed that when people realised they knew someone who was LGBT2Q+, they would be far more likely to support equality under the law. Each year on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day continues to promote a safe world for LGBT2Q+ individuals to live openly. It should be noted that modern LGBT2Q+ activists believe that the idea of "coming out" reinforces a view that heterosexuality is the norm. "Coming out" implicitly announces — to LGBTQ individuals, allies and enemies — that queer people are aberrant. There has additionally been growing acknowledgement that for many members of our Queer community, this places undue pressure on folks who are not in a safe country or circumstances to ‘come out’.

    Child Poverty Day

    Also known as International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is a time that highlights child poverty that exists even in developed nations. Apart from lagging in necessities such as food, and freshwater, child poverty also includes a lack of quality healthcare, education, and nutrition. When parents are unable to afford these, the child begins to suffer.
