On 21 May, New Zealanders of all ages, shapes, sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds turned all shades of māwhero for Pink Shirt Day – a day where we can all stand up for inclusivity and kindness.

Pink shirt day



Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. In Aotearoa, Pink Shirt Day works to create schools, workplaces, communities and whānau where everyone feels safe, valued and respected.
