2023 Queer Diversity Equity & Inclusion Calendar (DEI) 

There are plenty of ways to celebrate queer people and a great place to start is knowing important dates, anniversary and awareness days for queer people. Many of these awareness days combat ignorance about the LGBTQ community and bring attention to their various histories and struggles. This calendar is the perfect addition to your toolkit for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Often, DEI calendars feature ethnic, national or religious holidays and observances but leave out LGBTQ holidays (with exception to pride month).

We recommend bookmarking this page, especially if you’d like your workplace to become more inclusive for queer people. It’s a small step to bringing in folks from the margins into our collective communities. Work can be a place for community, and we must know which days to gather.

You can use this calendar to strengthen your marketing and outreach to specific demographics you’d like to reach for authentic connections. Targeting potential employees, customers and peers through timely events is a great way to signal that you’re committed to LGBTQ equity. Make sure that your initiatives and campaigns are well informed with this queer holiday, celebration and awareness day calendar.
