Every year until 2020 we used to feature on Country Pages, which can be accessed via the interactive world map, as much information on May 17 events as we could find. We are currently unfortunately not in a capacity to do so anymore until further notice.
Country pages now only feature announcements of events that were directly registered on our site.
You can find more information on what has happens for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia by scrolling down our Twitter feed @may17org
