(WorldKings.org) International Men’s Day observed on November 19 focuses on men’s health, improving gender relations, highlighting male role models, and promoting positive expressions of masculinity. It’s also an opportunity to recognize men who don’t fall into traditional manifestations of masculinity, such as gay and bisexual men, transgender, or masculine non-binary people.

 

 

International Men's Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated on the 19th of November. The objectives of celebrating an International Men's Day are set out in 'The Six Pillars of International Men's Day'. It is an occasion to celebrate boys' and men's achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to the nation, society, community, family, marriage, and childcare.

 

 

The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values. The 2020 theme is "Better Health for Men and Boys" with the aim to make practical improvements to the health and wellbeing of the male population.

 

 

Inaugurated in 1992 on 7 February by Thomas Oaster, the project of International Men's Day was conceived one year earlier on 8 February 1991. The project was re-initialized in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. The longest-running celebration of International Men's Day in Malta, where events have occurred since 7 February 1994.

 

 

Jerome Teelucksingh, who revived the event, chose 19 November to honor his father's birthday and also to celebrate how on that date in 1989 Trinidad and Tobago's football team had united the country with their endeavors to qualify for the World Cup. Teelucksingh has promoted International Men's Day as not just a gendered day but a day where all issues affecting men and boys can be addressed. He has said of IMD and its grassroots activists, "They are striving for gender equality and patiently attempt to remove the negative images and the stigma associated with men in our society".
