The National Day Against Homophobia is a Canadian event organized by the Fondation Émergence.
June 1, 2005 marked the event's third anniversary, which was celebrated with a posthumous award to the late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, who repealed anti-gay clauses from the Criminal Code of Canada, and is famous for saying that "The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation."
Belgium has followed Canada's lead, proclaiming its first National Day Against Homophobia in 2005.
In 2006, Canada changed the day of observance to May 17, to join the international movement.
