Day of Silence

To the Editor:

The Day of Silence is an annual day of action to protest the bullying and harassment of LGBTQ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning) students and their supporters.

For the Day of Silence students take a day-long vow of silence to symbolically represent the silencing of LGBTQ students and their supporters.

The Day of Silence has been held each year in April since 1996. The 2012 Day of Silence was April 20 and in 2011 it was on April 15. The most recent day of silence was last April 19 and this year it is being held on April 11.

Students all around the world will be participating on April 11 and we invite you to protest against the harassment and bullying of all LGBTQ and their allies.
