Day of Pink is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny across the world (http://dayofpink.org)
The Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two Grade 12 students saw a Grade 9 student who wearing a pink shirt being bullied on the first day of school. Bullies harassed the boy, called him a homosexual for wearing pink and threatened to beat him up. The two Grade 12 students – David Shepherd and Travis Price bought and distributed 50 pink shirts and encouraged peers to arrive to school wearing pink.
The result was that the school took a stand and began working together to prevent bullying.
We invite students, staff and parents to take a stand against bullying, celebrate diversity and challenge gender stereotypes by wearing a pink shirt in their workplaces, schools and communities. The Day of Pink is a symbol, a spark, that empowers and inspires youth across the world to create amazing social change!
