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!

NOH8 in New York

By Bella Sie On May 10, 2011 | 0 Comments

Adam BouskaOn November 4 2008, Proposition 8 was passed in the state of California to ban same-sex marriages. Considering that same-sex marriages were legalised merely 5 months prior to the Prop 8 amendment, you can imagine how the LGBT community reacted, and no, they were not stoked.

The NOH8 Campaign was created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jess Parshley to silently protest Proposition 8 with a series of photos. You may recognise these photos featuring subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek.

By holding open photo shoots around the world, the NOH8 Campaign has grown exponentially since its grassroots beginnings uniting over 13,000 faces to the social cause. This weekend NOH8 will be in New York City to host yet another open photo shoot, but to also fundraise for AIDS Walk NY. With a social agenda to end discrimination in all its forms, this cause couldn't be more important to me, a fellow gay.

My dear friend (and Hello Cool World's Media Buyer) Kevin Young will be flying out of Vancouver on his own bill to volunteer at this NYC event, and we couldn't be more proud of him. Best of luck Kev! You're gonna do big things :)
