Day of Pink is an anti-bullying campaign held every year, on the second Wednesday in April. It started in Canada in 2007, after two students saw a gay student wearing a pink shirt, being bullied.

A few days later, they had the whole school galvanised and students turned-up wearing pink as demonstration of solidarity against homophobic bullying.

Now, the internationally recognised Day of Pink, is a celebration of diversity when millions of people across the world make a stand against all types of bullying and discrimination by wearing pink and organising events and activities in their workplaces, schools and communities.

Vive la différence!
