Over the years the pedophile community has evolved to have special observance days. Girllovers celebrate Alice Day on April 25th. Boylovers celebrate International Boylove Day twice a year - on the first and last Saturdays between the days of the solstice (including those days). But there is still no day that would unite the entire pedo-community.
For this matter we propose Day of Remembrance and Solidarity with the victims of pedophobia.
This is a day to remember those people who have not committed any violence and whose lives were destroyed by anti-pedophile laws and public hatred. Victims of pedophobia can be men and women, pedophiles and non-pedophiles, adults and children. This day could also be a good occasion to support those who serve prison sentences, have to register as a sex offender and suffer from other similar restrictions.
We need to choose a date for this. After discussions with pedophiles from different countries, several candidate dates were proposed. Please read the options below and vote for one of them.
Update July 24, 2019
We have finished the vote. It identified two leaders - April 22 and July 19. But a number of people expressed a desire to see more options for choosing the date. We decided to arrange a second round of voting. It will include two leaders of the first round and additional options. If you have your suggestions, then send it via the feedback form.
April 22, the day Edward Brongersma committed voluntary euthanasia
Edward Brongersma (1911-1998) was a Dutch politician and doctor of law. For a number of years he was a member of the Dutch Senate for the Labour Party, and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. All his life he defended the rights of pedophiles.
In the last years of his life, Dr. Brongersma received threats and was subjected to public persecution. He died by voluntary euthanasia at April 22, 1998, after seeing the political climate in his own country and elsewhere turn against the radical sexual reforms he had fought long and hard for.
In addition, on April 22, 2019, Roman Tsiro from Polotsk was severely beaten and buried alive. The reason was his platonic relationship with a high school girl, whom he refused to leave.
July 19, the supposed date of the murder of Joseph Doucé
Joseph Doucé (1945-1990) was an excommunicated Belgian baptist pastor. In 1976, he founded Christ Redemptor's Center in Paris. The CRC welcomed and gave a voice to people belonging to sexual minorities: homosexual, transsexual, sado-masochistic and pedophile people. Pastor Doucé was one of the founders of International Lesbian and Gay Association.
Because of his support of pedophiles, the French police became interested in him. Guy Bondar was Doucé's partner, they lived together. Bondar reported that on the evening of July 19, 1990, two men in plainclothes knocked on their door, showed badges indicating they were police and asked Doucé to accompany them for questioning. He never returned and on October 24, 1990, his badly decomposed body was discovered in the forest of Fontainebleau, southwest of Paris. Doucé was strangled shortly after Bondar saw him for the last time. It has been claimed that Doucé was the target of the Rensignements Generaux (RG), a branch of the French national police that investigated political subjects. The RG had a reputation for illegal and corrupt activities. The French interior minister disbanded the RG, partly as a result of the controversy over Doucé's disappearance and murder. His murder has never been solved.
July 29, the day Paul Christiano committed suicide
Paul Christiano (1976-2015) was a talented dancer and choreographer from Chicago whose career was ruined by the information that in the past he was convicted of purchasing child pornography and registered as a sex offender in the state of Illinois.
For many years he was a dedicated volunteer and board member for B4U-ACT, working towards reducing social stigma and creating a more just society for those attracted to children and adolescents.
On July 29, 2015, he last said goodbye to his friends and committed suicide. His body was found on August 1st.

October 11, the day Michael Fateev committed suicide because of torture
Michael Fateev (1974-2018) was a Russian theater and film actor. He was openly gay and presumably ephebophile. He was detained on charges of distributing pornography and sexual activities with a 14-year-old teenager via online correspondence. On October 11, 2018, he committed suicide in the detention center's toilet.
On the same day, his lawyer visited him earlier. Michael gave a note to his artistic director through the lawyer. Here is its content:
Dear Roman Grigorievich! Loved theater. Forgive me for those reputational risks that you suffer because of me. Believe me, after those tortures that were here and, I think, will be, the only thing that gives me strength (no, this is not pain, fear, humilation or desire to prove something to someone with my leaving) is faith. Your faith in me. No matter what. Believe me, I am not guilty!!! Only here you understand how valuable you all are to me. Keep faith in freedom, in love and be creative contrary!
I belive that I will be able to say thank you everyone. Hope to see you all. I believe in a miracle! Michael.
In addition, October 11 is International Day of the Girl Child.
