International Day of Pink is observed every year on the second Wednesday of April. The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) observes International Day of Pink annually by highlighting student-based anti-bullying initiatives.
International Day of Pink started when a Nova Scotia teen was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. His fellow students rallied by all wearing pink and showed their solidarity against the discrimination of 2SLGBTQ+ students.
This day encourages young people to challenge social norms, ask more of their educators, and stand up against bullying and systemic discrimination.
