Wednesday, April 12, 2023, marks the International Day of Pink. Communities across the world wear a pink shirt (or other item of clothing) to celebrate diversity, raise awareness, and put an end to all forms of bullying.
Discrimination takes many shapes, whether it’s based on race, age, religion, disabilities, gender or sexuality. The 2SLGBTQIA+ community is no stranger to the bullying and violence that stems from hateful beliefs. While progress has been made toward removing these social barriers from our society, discrimination still persists. So, on the second Wednesday of April each year, people worldwide are urged to put on a pink shirt and stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to continue fighting for equality and acceptance.
International Day of Pink has one purpose: to create a more inclusive and diverse world. We do this by encouraging young people to challenge social norms, ask more of their educators, and stand up against bullying.
