International Pronouns Day

International Pronouns Day began in 2018 and “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”.

“This person I know,
Wants to be called they,
It could bring people much closer,
To see them that way.
It’s a strange thing to think,
And harder to say,
But they are so happy when the effort is made.
For all the theys and thems,
It is this that I pray,
We will be kind and accepting,
And just let them be they” (Sam Smith, Instagram post)
