transfixed

hooray for teenage equalists!

"Two students at Central Kings Rural High School fought back against bullying recently, unleashing a sea of pink after a new student was harassed and threatened when he showed up wearing a pink shirt."

They bought 75 pink tank tops and brought in pink fabric for headbands/armbands, and HALF of the school wore pink!

"David said one of the bullies angrily asked him whether he knew pink on a male was a symbol of homosexuality. He told the bully that didn’t matter to him and shouldn’t to anyone." http://thechronicleherald.ca/Front/858884.html

Travis says "we’re just two kids who stood up for a cause." http://thechronicleherald.ca/Front/859436.html

David & Travis, you are amazing! Thank you for making a difference ♥ and thank you to happy_gay_life for the beautiful story.
