International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is observed on May 17 and aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work worldwide. 
The main purpose of the May 17 mobilisations is to raise awareness of violence, discrimination, and repression of LGBT communities worldwide, which in turn provides an opportunity to take action and engage in dialogue with the media, policymakers, public opinion, and wider civil society.

In support of this, the Library would like to draw your attention to many of the excellent e-resources we offer which provide valuable research content in such areas as social, cultural and political issues.  These include ProQuest's Political ScienceSocial Policy Digest and, of course, EBSCO's far-ranging Academic Search Premier.

These databases are supplemented by such excellent e-journals as the Journal of Social Policy and, from Springer, Sexuality Research and Social Policy.
