Today is International Pronoun Day
October 20, 2021 is International Pronoun Day (https://pronounsday.org)
This day reminds us all to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.
It's important to refer to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves — it's foundational to human dignity. Transgender and gender non-conforming people are particularly affected by making assumptions about pronouns. By normalizing pronoun sharing, we can stop assuming and celebrate people’s varied, multiple and intersecting identities.
