International Pronouns Day

Pronouns Matter: International Pronouns Day, October 18, 2023

What is International Pronouns Day?

International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people's multiple, intersecting identities.

International Pronouns Day began in 2018 and takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of October each year.
