    19 Canadians Who Rocked The Hell Out Of Pink To Stand Up To Bullying

    The Day of Pink is a reminder that anti-gay and anti-trans bullying hurts.

    The Day of Pink is celebrated every year as a stand against bullying, especially of the anti-gay and anti-trans variety.

    People across Canada marked it on Wednesday by wearing pink shirts and speaking out against discrimination.

    It got its start in Nova Scotia when two students stood up for a victim of anti-gay bullying by wearing pink shirts in solidarity.

    Here are some Canadians who gave it their all.

    1. These two who — bless them — kinda, sorta, really tried.

    2. Toronto Police officers teamed up with local trans activist Susan Gapka to speak with students.

    4. Ontario's first openly gay premier, Kathleen Wynne, also got in on the action.

    6. Others made it a whole office event.

    17. Leave it to man's best friend to just get that bullying needs to end.

    18. But ultimately today is a reminder that it isn't shirts that stop bullying...

    19. It's the people wearing them. 💕
