  • NATIONAL PIERCING DAY

    National Piercing Day, which is observed each year on May 16, was created simply to promote piercing.  Stores, shops, boutiques and salons across the country offer piercing specials and other promotions on National Piercing Day.

    Since ancient times, body piercings have been used for artistic expression, medical treatment and religious ceremony.

  • HONOR OUR LGBT ELDERS DAY

    Honor Our LGBT Elders Day is observed annually on May 16.

    The rights and acceptance that LGBTQ individuals have today did not occur in a vacuum or happen by accident.  Our LGBT elders worked hard to gain rights and social acceptance.

    Honor Our LGBT Elders Day is an opportunity for community centers, faith organizations, educational institutions and aging service providers to recognize the lives of LGBT older adults and honor their contributions to history.
