When is International Men's Day 2023

International Men's Day will be celebrated with great pomp and enthusiasm worldwide on Sunday, November 19.

International Men's Day 2023 theme

The theme for International Men's Day 2023 is 'Zero Male Suicide', which highlights the importance of helping men and boys to manage their mental health. November is a crucial month for men's souls and for creating a safe environment in which men can be vulnerable.

History of International Men's Day

Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, first observed International Men's Day in 1999 in honour of his father's birthday. He urged everyone to use the day to discuss issues that affect boys and men in particular.

However, Thomas Oaster was the founder of International Men's Day in 1992. It had been conceived a year earlier. Because of its significance, Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, revived the day in 1999. In addition to commemorating his father's birthday on 19 November 1989, Dr Teelucksingh decided to celebrate International Men's Day on the same day to commemorate the unification of the Trinidad and Tobago football team, which enabled the nation to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.

Dr Teelucksingh argued that International Men's Day should be a day to consider global issues affecting men and boys, rather than just a celebration of gender. Every year on November 19, the day falls on the same day as Movember, a campaign to raise money for men's health in which men, or Mo Bros, grow beards and refrain from shaving.

International Men's Day significance

The day encourages open discussion about the challenges men face, such as stereotypes and societal expectations, while highlighting the need for support systems and initiatives that contribute to their overall health and happiness. Ultimately, International Men's Day aims to create a more inclusive and understanding world for all.
