Day of Pink

Join us April 10th as Canadians nationwide wear PINK to raise awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying.

The Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia when two straight high school students saw their gay peer who was wearing a pink shirt being bullied. The two students intervened, but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic and transphobic bullying. A few days later, they got everyone at school to arrive wearing pink, in solidarity.

The message was clear: anyone can bully, anyone can be victimized by bullying, but together we can stop it.

Each year on the second Wednesday of April, The Day of Pink brings together millions across Canada and around the world to strive for social change.
