CHATTER: University of Toronto Schools to celebrate Day of Pink (Spring 2018)

May 1st, 2018 · No Comments

Students from the University of Toronto Schools (UTS) will join schools across the city and around the world to mark Day of Pink on April 11. A feature of the celebration will be their annual public event during lunch hour in Matt Cohen Park at Bloor Street West and Spadina Road. It’s the fifth year that the school has marked the day, aimed at ending homophobia, bullying, and discrimination.

This year’s theme explores erasure and how marginalized groups are concealed from society. The students are raising money for the Rainbow Railroad, which helps LGBT people who have faced physical violence or face an imminent threat of violence, imprisonment, or death.
