October 21, 2020: International Pronouns Day
International Pronouns Day, this year celebrated on October 21, 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.

International Pronouns Day began in 2018 and takes place on the third Wednesday of October each year. Individuals and groups will participate in grassroots activities that they determine at the local level.

In English, there are a number of different kinds of pronouns. International Pronouns Day is specifically referring to third person personal pronouns, which are used to describe a person when you are talking about them. You can learn more about sharing, asking about and recovering from mistakes when using pronouns at MyPronouns.org.
