International Day of Pink

The International Day of Pink happens every year on the 16th of April. It is the international day against bullying, discrimination and homophobia everywhere. This day is dedicated to all who have been hurt either mentally or physically because they were different in any way, and also to promote diversity. This day was created by Jeremy Dias, founder and director of Jer’s Vision, http://jersvision.org/en/. Day of pink is a day to bring our communities together and inform them on what is going on with all this prejudice, how badly it is affecting the targeted people, and how we all need to help stop all of it. What some people aren’t aware of is that the world needs different people, if we were all the same, the world would be such a dull place, but the fact that we are all unique, in my opinion, makes the world so much more interesting. It was a brilliant idea for Jeremy to create this day so people can show their support, as I will show mine. They have a website – http://www.dayofpink.org – where you can register and win awesome prizes, or possibly show your support through a donation.
