International Non-Binary Day 2020
International Non-Binary Day is an annual day to celebrate and bring visibility to people who are non-binary in the LGBT+ community. It is a relatively new awareness day in the LGBT+ calendar.
Please join us for an "afternoon chat" over tea cake and chocolate at NTAHC Darwin - 46 Woods st from 3pm to 4pm on 14 July.
This event is being put on by NTAHCs new "LGBTI Living Well" Program, meet Dr Belinda Chaplin program coordinator, community members in a safe and supportive environment.
The International Non-Binary day was first celebrated in 2012. It takes place on this day because it is, precisely midpoint from International Women’s Day and International Men’s Day.
THE FLAG - The Non Binary flag consist of 4 colors in horizontal stripes. Yellow, White Purple and Black.
It’s a truly deserved day for non-binary people all over the world to celebrate just how amazing they are.
There’s still a lot to do when it comes to the non-binary community however. Most countries in the world still do not recognize non-binary as a legal gender, meaning most NB people still have a gendered passport and official identification.
There is some hope however!
Canada has already started offering it’s citizens the opportunity to obtain a non-binary birth certificate.
As far back as 2003, it was reported that Australians can choose to have an X on their passports, instead of the gendered F (for female) or M (for male).
There’s still a long way to go though, and it begins with each and everyone of us.
