Day of Pink

 
 
 

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. See the Day of Pink page for more photos.
