International Day Against Homophobia
Thanks to Dorian; otherwise, I would've wandered about clueless that today was the International Day Against Homophobia:
In addition, individuals who are concerned about the problem of homophobia, but who think that they may not have a place in the LGBT Pride Day marches, are nonetheless provided a means to voice their concerns through the Global Day. Similarly, but on an international level, in those countries where it is impossible to organize a LGBT Pride Day march, a campaign against homophobia may be undertaken on the Global Day Against Homophobia, particularly where, officially at least, homosexuality is not condemned through enforced laws. In this way, the Global Day may constitute a political lever in addition to that provided by LGBT Pride Day campaigns for individuals or countries that cannot (or will not) participate in the organization of Pride marches.
Seems like the sort of thing that would be best known about in advance... so mark it on your calendars for next year.
