Apr. 8th – International Day of Pink
It is an international anti-bullying event held annually during the second week of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied in their Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia, and deciding to show support for the student by getting everyone at their school to wear pink the following day.
The Day of Pink is the international day against bullying, discrimination, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and transmisogyny. The day is usually marked by wearing a pink shirt and by organizing activities in workplaces, schools and communities.
