Day of Pink
Today is the International Day of Pink, which is about calling attention to and helping to create a more inclusive and diverse world. To steal from their website:
April 14, 2021 is the International Day of Pink!
Discrimination takes many shapes, whether it’s based on race, age, disabilities, gender or sexuality. The 2SLGBTQIA+ community is no stranger to the bullying and violence that stems from hateful beliefs. While progress has been made towards removing these social barriers from our society, discrimination still persists. So, every year, on the second Wednesday of April, we urge people around the world to put on a pink shirt and stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to continue fighting for equality and acceptance.
I'm always stunned by how far and how fast things have changed in even just the last 10 years, but that is still just a tiny slice of what needs to be done. We need to lock in the advancements made, and push even further until everyone can be their true selves without fear of discrimination or abuse.
