DETROIT (WXYZ) — Saturday, August 13 is International Left-Handers Day!
International Left-Handers Day, created in 1976 by Dean R. Campbell, founder of the Lefthanders International, celebrates sinistrality, the medical term for left-handedness and to create awareness of the advantages and disadvantages left-handers face in a right-hand designed world.
According to a 2019 study by the National Institute of Health, "hand preference is a conspicuous variation in human behaviour, with a worldwide proportion of around 90% of people preferring to use the right hand for many tasks, and 10% the left hand."
Here's a gallery of some of the most famous lefty's.
