International Day of Pink
On Wednesday, April 8 the GSA Club will be joining the International Day of Pink to
raise awareness to end bullying, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia and show
support for diversity. There will be fun activities and games throughout the school day
and a free pizza lunch. We are asking our staff and students to wear something pink
on that day--an article of clothing, a ribbon, hair dye, etc. The Day of Pink was started
in the fall of 2007 after a student in a Nova Scotia high school was bullied for wearing
a pink shirt and being openly gay. Two students saw the incident and intervened, but
they felt that it was not enough. After some thought, they got every student at the
school to wear pink as a way of saying, "Bullying stops with me. Anyone can be
bullied, but if we all stand together, we can make it stop."
