Holocaust Remembrance Day

Holocaust Remembrance Day is very important to the queer community as during the Holocaust, gay men in particular were subject to harassment, arrest, incarceration, and even castration. In Nazi eyes, gay men were weak and unfit to be soldiers, as well as unlikely to have children and thereby contribute to the racial struggle for Aryan dominance. Gay men were branded with a pink triangle on their uniform and were often treated as the lowest caste of prisoner. Today, the queer community has reclaimed the pink triangle and uses it as a symbol of resiliency and unity.

Pansexual Pride Day

Pansexual Pride Day focuses on celebrating the lives, accomplishments, and resiliency of those within the Pansexual+ community every year on December 8th!

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day has been observed on December 1 every year since 1988, with the purpose of honouring and remembering the millions who have been lost to the epidemic and to bring attention to HIV/AIDS and those currently living with it. Each year, ARCHES participates in honouring those who have been lost to their battle with AIDS and to support those living with AIDS. Stay tuned for more event details in the coming months!
