Each year on the second Wednesday of April, Canadians and others across the globe observe the International Day of Pink in our schools to celebrate diversity and raise awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, and all forms of bullying.
As gay men, many of us know first-hand what it was like to be bullied. Now that we're parents ourselves, we want to make sure our kids are safe from bullying.
At Gays With Kids, we encourage our children and all children to accept differences, to be open-minded, and to respect one another.
That's why we're all wearing pink today.
Check out our video from last year below.
Toronto Police Officers Danielle Bottineau (the LGBT Liaison for the Toronto Police Service) and Luke Watson talk about their ongoing commitment to stop homophobia and bullying in Toronto's schools. You'll also learn the story behind the now famous pink hair (for International Day of Pink) that went viral, and the officers share safety tips for gay dads and their kids. #Heroes #StopBullying #DayofPink
