International Day of Pink History
International Day of Pink seeks to create a more inclusive and diverse world. This day encourages people to challenge social norms, ask more questions of educators, and stand up against bullying. It further aims to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community by encouraging everyone to wear a pink shirt.
International Day of Pink was founded in 2007 by the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD). This day was inspired by two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price. They encouraged their school to all wear pink as a sign of solidarity and to stand against bullying. This day is observed annually on the second Wednesday in April.
