Canada’s leaders share messages on Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia

Today, May 17, is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. The annual observance, which has been marked since 2005 — now in over 130 countries around the world — raises awareness about LGBTQ2 rights and rights violations.

Canadian leaders and politicians have taken the opportunity to share positive messages of solidarity with the LGBTQ2 community, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

Homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia have no place in our country. That’s true today, on #IDAHOTB, and every day – and it’s up to each and every one of us to make sure everyone can live freely and openly, regardless of who they love or how they identify. https://t.co/dZsuXAVALH pic.twitter.com/RHn2AgkXJ3— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) May 17, 2021
