International Worker’s Day
Details:

International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day and May Day, is a celebration of labourers and the working classes. May Day has been acknowledged for more than a century and is an annual observance and celebration of the achievements of the trade union movement including the establishment of employment standards, occupational health and safety legislations, and old age security. While commemorating the hard-won victories of working people and the labour movement is important, May Day is also an annual reminder that the struggle remains as the impact of globalization can only be contested by heightened international solidarity.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia
Details:

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT) was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally. On this date in 1990, the World Health Organization (WHO) declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. In 2009, the (T) in IDAHOT was added to reflect transgender identities. And in 2015, biophiba was added to the day’s name to show solidarity with bisexual identities.
