Day of Pink 2013
Day of Pink is the International Day against
Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, and Transphobia in schools and
communities. It started in 2007 when two high school students in Nova Scotia
took a stand against bullying in their school. The students asked all of their
peers to wear pink to school after they heard a male classmate had been bullied
for wearing a pink shirt.
Leading up to
April 10’s event, Kelvin High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance created window
displays, set up a noon-hour information booth, and sold pink t-shirts.
Students from the GSA spoke at an anti-bullying assembly and outlined the
planned events at a staff meeting. Kelvin’s students and staff celebrated
diversity on April 10 by dressing in pink, wearing pink face paint, writing on
the anti-bullying wall, and enjoying an after-school movie.
