International Men’s Day was inaugurated in 1992 on February 7 by Thomas Oaster. In 1999, the event was revived by Jerome Teelucksing. He chose November 19 to acknowledge his father’s birthday and to celebrate how on that date in 1989 Trinidad and Tobago’s football team had united the country with their efforts to qualify for the World Cup.

In India, the inaugural celebration of the day was organized by the leading Indian Men’s rights organisation named Indian Family on 19 November 2007.
