17 May – International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia

For the first time since 2013, the City of Geneva has taken the decision not to conduct its annual campaign organised around the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on 17 May. This day will nevertheless be marked by the decoration of the Pont du Mont-Blanc and the Palais Eynard.


Pont du Mont-Blanc

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and with the aim of protecting the health of both its partners and the general public, the City of Geneva has decided to postpone its annual campaign against homophobia and transphobia.

The events planned for the month of May will now be held in October, around Coming Out Day (11 October 2020). In the meantime, the outstanding 2019 campaign “Mémoires LGBTIQ+”, and the campaigns of previous years can be consulted here

Once again this year, the City has nevertheless decided to mark this significant international day by decorating the Pont du Mont-Blanc and the Palais Eynard in the rainbow colours from Friday 15 May to Sunday 17 May.

The LGBTIQ+ communities, and in particular their most vulnerable members, have been severely impacted by the current health and social situation. The institutions and associations striving to prevent gender-based violence continue to provide their services. Whether you are a victim or a witness, please do not hesitate to contact them.
