We will be wearing T-shirts, ties, socks, hairbands — whatever pink items that we have!
I have my pink shirt and socks set aside!
The International Day of Pink
The International Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia when two straight high school students saw a gay student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. The two students intervened, but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic and transphobic bullying. They decided to purchase pink shirts, and a few days later got everyone at school to arrive wearing pink, standing in solidarity. The result was that an entire school took a stand and began working together to prevent homophobic and transphobic bullying.
Anyone can bully, anyone can be victimized by bullying, but together we can stop it.
There are always things that we can do to improve our world and our community … this is just one more small thing. Show your support, it is how society evolves.
