Today is the Day of Pink, an international event to raise awareness against bullying, discrimination, and homophobia. People are asked to wear pink to show support for this important issue. The event started in Nova Scotia by two high-school students, but has spread nationally and internationally.
In honour of the Day of Pink, here’s an antique postcard of someone proudly wearing pink:
This postcard is so old, it is from the early days of postcards (early 1900s) when people were not allowed to write on the back side of the postcard (that’s was for the postal system only). So people had to cram their message onto the front.
“Dear Frank. Arrived safely. Tell Roy to address me at [X] Sherbourne St. Kind Regards to all – yours – H.W.W.
Although this pink outfit is definitely “The Favourite” and very elaborate, wear any item of pink today to show your support!
