On Tuesday, February 11, LGBT Tech released the LGBTQ+ Days of Significance Calendar on their website. The calendar, which LGBT Tech has been developing since late 2019, seeks to provide an international compilation of days important to the LGBTQ+ community. Each event on the calendar provides historical background for the event in question, as well as additional resources for those interested in learning more. With this resource, LGBT Tech hopes to give visibility to the incredible diversity of the international LGBTQ+ community, while also highlighting important moments in LGBTQ+ history.
Though expansive in scope, this calendar is by no means comprehensive. While our intention has been to include as much as possible, we recognize our own limitations in putting this calendar together. As an LGBTQ+ organization focused primarily on policy in the United States, we tend to focus on the LGBTQ+ communities closest to home rather than the larger international LGBTQ+ community. We hope that by opening up the calendar beyond ourselves, we can update it continuously to include everyone within the global LGBTQ+ community.
Because this calendar is a constant work in progress, we've included a submission form for days we've missed. If you'd like to see an LGBTQ+ significant day added to the calendar, let us know through the submission form.
We hope this will be a valuable resource, for LGBTQ+ communities across the globe as well as allies and larger communities looking to educate themselves on LGBTQ+ issues.
The calendar is available on our website under the Resources tab.
