In 2005, 15 years to the day after the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the International Classification of Diseases published by the World Health Organization, May 17 became the International Day of Awareness and Prevention to act against violence in all its forms and in all places (physical, psychological, sexual, medical, social, institutional) towards homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
This is an opportunity for Aix-Marseille University to recall its strong commitment throughout the year to the rights and protection of LGBT people.
