Day of Pink

Today is Day of Pink, the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia and Transphobia in schools and communities. It began when two straight students at a Nova Scotia high school witnessed a gay student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. The two students intervened, and then organized everyone at school to show up a few days later wearing a pink shirt to show their support. Now, on April 10, thanks to organizations like Jer's Vision, everyone has the chance to make a public stance against bullying and discrimination by wearing a pink shirt all day.

Here's my pink shirt. Incidentally, it's the only clean pink shirt I own, and it's not exactly the most business appropriate choice of wardrobe for a lawyer at a law office - but it's for a good cause right?
