Gender Diversity Calendar 2024

Updated: Dec 12, 2023



Welcome to our Gender Diversity, Sexuality, Gender, and Privilege-focused Diversity Calendar! This calendar is a specialized resource centered on fostering understanding, awareness, and inclusivity within these critical intersections of human rights. It's designed to provide insight and recognition for important observances, events, and historical milestones directly related to gender diversity, sexuality, and privilege.


Unlike comprehensive calendars that cover a wide spectrum of cultural, religious, and national observances, this calendar deliberately focuses on these specific areas, aiming to create a concentrated resource for those seeking to deepen their understanding and commitment to these vital aspects of diversity. We've curated this calendar with the aim of highlighting the nuanced and essential aspects of gender identity and expression, recognizing their significance in promoting a more inclusive and empathetic world.
