"All profits from this pin will be donated to GLSEN to raise awareness on the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools."
Started in 1996s, GLSEN Day of Silence is a USA national student-led demonstration to spread awareness about the effects of bullying and harassment of LGBTQ+ students. On the second friday of April, students take a day-long vow of silence to represent the silencing of LGBTQ+ students.
It is crucial for LGBTQ+ students to grow up in an accepting environment for their mental and social well-being. LGBTQ youth who committed suicide were 5x more likely to have been bullied. Schools can help to create a safer environment by having a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA).
