Good Day Community! 👋


Today marks International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. This day aims to raise awareness of violence, discrimination, and repression against 2SLGBTQ+ communities, and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms.

The World Health Organization officially made the decision to declassify homosexuality from its list of diagnosis on May 17th, 1990. This day is celebrated in more than 130 countries including in 37 where homosexuality is still illegal. It is an opportunity to celebrate sexual and gender diversity, and we're proud to show our support as we build an inclusive culture for all our teams at Rogers.


While progress has been made, those in the community are still often still stigmatized. Everyone has the right to feel safe in being their true self and expressing their gender and sexuality freely. The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia gives us an opportunity to reaffirm the equality of 2SLGBTQ+ persons. Every year there is a different theme and this year's theme is "No One Left Behind: Equality, Freedom and Justice for All"


How will you be commemorating this day?


Yours in Community,
