[TPS] – Toronto Police Service celebrates International Day of Pink with students

Toronto Police Service celebrates International Day of Pink with students

On Wednesday, April 12, 2017, the Toronto Police Service, in partnership with the students at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, and Mayor John Tory, celebrated the International Day of Pink by highlighting student-based, anti-bullying initiatives and an awareness video created by members of the Service’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer (LGBTQ) Internal Support Network.

Students at Agincourt Collegiate Institute have been spending the last several weeks developing anti-bullying campaigns and displayed them for the first time at the celebration. Projects included dance and singing performances, videos and other presentations by various student groups.

“The Toronto Police Service has made significant strides working with the LGBTQ communities. One of our proudest moments is celebrating the International Day of Pink,” said Deputy Chief Jim Ramer. “We will always have more work to do and we look forward to listening to these students and learning about new ways to rally behind LGBTQ youth, not just today but every day.”

“I am proud to lead a city which is seen around the world as a leader in recognizing, respecting, legislating, upholding and, as much as anything else, celebrating LGBTQ rights,” said Mayor John Tory. “But that doesn’t mean we are perfect. There is still too much bullying and discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation and that’s why the Day of Pink is so important. I want to commend the work students at Agincourt Collegiate Institute are doing around anti-bullying initiatives and setting an example for the rest of us.”

The International Day of Pink started when a Nova Scotia teen was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. His fellow students rallied – by all wearing pink – and showed their solidarity against LGBT-based discrimination.

The Toronto Police Service would like to thank the following community partners for their support and dedication in making this year’s International Day of Pink event a success:

– Toronto Police Service LGBTQ Community Consultative Committee
– Agincourt Collegiate Institute
– Toronto District School Board
– Amazing Party Store
– You Can Play Project
