Yes, that’s right, today is international anti-homophobia day. Lots of things happening around the world to mark this day. I’m going to focus one one small event that happened locally. In Gladstone Secondary on the eastside of Vancouver, a pride/Canadiana flag was flown proudly as students got decked out in all sorts of purple get ups, munched on purple cupcakes and painted/decked the halls all sorts of funky colors. Bright balloons and streamers were everywhere.
Support for LGBTQ youth was at an all time high. Here are a few photos to really get in the spirit. Happy Anti-Homophobia Day!
