International Pronouns Day

International Pronouns Day "seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace." It is an education and advocacy day devoted to pronouns—devoted to respecting the pronouns of others and sharing one's own pronouns. Pronouns and inclusive language form the foundation for building respect, awareness, and greater learning. Referring to people by the pronouns they identify with is essential for human dignity. It is one of the first and most basic ways that the humanity of transgender and binary people can be acknowledged, and broader conversations with and about transgender communities may spring from conversations about pronouns.

This grassroots event, founded in 2018, is organized by local organizations and communities. Planning largely centers on the needs, voices, and interests of transgender and nonbinary people, particularly those who are marginalized in multiple ways. Some examples of activities that have been organized for the day are pronouns cookie decorating, pronouns and pizza discussion events, art exhibits, formal proclamations recognizing the day, production of short documentaries, film screenings, photos and testimonials series, workshops, and outreach.
