Celebrating Visibility and Progress on International Day of Pink




On the second Wednesday of April each year, we come together to celebrate the International Day of Pink, a powerful reminder of our shared commitment to fight against anti-2SLGBTQ+ bullying and discrimination. At Global Learning, we believe that this day is an opportunity to reflect on the progress made, honor the resilience of the 2SLGBTQ+ community, and renew our dedication to creating a more equitable and inclusive world.


The journey of the 2SLGBTQ+ community is a story of both challenges and triumphs. From the dark days of persecution to the hard-fought victories of liberation, this community has shown remarkable strength and determination. As allies and advocates, our role goes beyond mere celebration; it is about standing in solidarity with our 2SLGBTQ+ family, friends, and colleagues, and working towards their empowerment and equitable inclusion.


This year's International Day of Pink holds special significance as we commemorate three pivotal moments in Canadian 2SLGBTQ+ history: the 50th anniversary of the Depathologization of Homosexuality, the Brunswick Four, and the 25th anniversary of the Transgender Flag. These milestones serve as a testament to the progress we've made and the work that still lies ahead.


At Global Learning, we invite you to join us in supporting the International Day of Pink. Explore the resources available, find ways to get involved, and become an active participant in our collective journey towards equity and inclusivity. Together, we can create a world where everyone is truly 'visible' – acknowledged, celebrated, appreciated, and respected for who they are.


Our actions have the power to shape the future. This International Day of Pink, let's make them count. Support. Celebrate. Be the change.
