Happy Pink Shirt Day!

By David Ng On April 09, 2014 | 0 Comments

Hello Cool World is proud to be a partner for Pink Shirt Day!

For those who don't know - Pink Shirt Day originated in Nova Scotia, where a student was bullied for wearing pink.  The friends of the student that was bullied, David Shepherd and Travis Price, distributed pink shirts to grade 9 students who wore them in support of their friend who was bullied.  Since then, pink shirt day is celebrated all over the world as a statement against bullying and homophobia.

We love this demonstration of solidarity against bullying!  

One of my favorite campaigns that we did a few years ago was called the "Super Power Project" where we used video to help youth tell stories about gender oppression and violence against women.  What was interesting, was that we were able to engage with boys about how to be allies to people around them that might be having difficult experiences.  While we may not share the same experiences, the great thing about solidarity is that we can still support those around us, and build a community of caring, empathetic, loving people.  Pink shirt day is great example of how we can do that!

As we work on the new video for Chee Mamuk (STI Division of the BC Centre for Disease Control) with youth from the Sto:lo Nation (and a few others) I am feeling very privileged to get to work with such great people on projects that I really believe will have an impact. Don't Stress the Tests is an excerpt of the video we did last year with youth in  Chemainus. The new video we are launching later this month is called "Strong Path".
