The International Day of Pink is a day of action, born when a youth in a high school in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied because he wore a pink shirt to school. His fellow students decided to stand up to bullying; hundreds of students came to school wearing pink to show support for diversity and stopping discrimination, gender-based bullying, homophobia and transphobia.

The goal of the International Day of Pink is to bring this message across the world, through an international day of action that anyone can take part in. Please wear pink on April 9th in support of diversity and to challenge gender stereotypes, homophobia and transphobia.
