Pink Shirt Day in Support of Bullying Prevention

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day started in Canada in 2007, when two Nova Scotia high school students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, decided to take a stand against homophobic bullying after a grade 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. David and Travis bought dozens of pink shirts and distributed them to their male classmates to wear the next day. The word got out and hundreds of students showed up in pink, some from head-to-toe, to stand together against bullying.
