National Day Against Homophobia

The National Day Against Homophobia is a Canadian event organized by the Fondation Émergence.
June 1, 2005 marked the event's third anniversary, which was celebrated with a posthumous award to the late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, who repealed anti-gay clauses from the Criminal Code of Canada, and is famous for saying that "The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation" (a sentence taken from a Globe and Mail editorial).
In 2006, however, Fondation Émergence changed the day of observance to May 17, to join the International Day Against Homophobia movement (IDAHO).
