International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

On May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, CUPE recommits to fighting for safety for LGBTQ2+ workers and ending hate in all its forms.

Two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and trans people are subjected to harassment and discrimination far too often. This also occurs in our own workplaces. A recent report released by CUPE, Egale Canada and Carleton University, found that LGBTQ2+ workers and LGBTQ2+ older adults in Canada do not always experience safety when working in or accessing public services, and that these issues are especially severe for those also facing racism, ableism and other forms of oppression.

Importantly, the report shows that safer working conditions for LGBTQ2+ public service workers are related to safer service conditions for LGBTQ2+ clients, and vice versa. CUPE members know that our working conditions are the conditions of service provision. And we fight every day to make our workplaces and public services safer for all. Homophobia, transphobia and biphobia have no place in our workplaces and communities. Today and every day, CUPE stands with LGBTQ2+ workers to end violence, harassment, and discrimination.
