For immediate release
The International Day of Pink is when communities around the world unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, and bullying that targets LGBTQ2 people and those from other equity-seeking groups.
This year we will observe the Day of Pink under the unique constraints of social distancing, and when many of our community’s most vulnerable are feeling isolated, alone, and uncertain about the future.
We are here for them. That’s why Borderland Pride invites all area residents to decorate their homes, windows, and buildings IN PINK ALL WEEK—from April 6 to 10—to show that we stand together against bullying, violence, and discrimination, and to celebrate the diversity of those who live here.
Families who decorate their homes or who wear pink on Wednesday, April 8 are encouraged to email a photo to BorderlandPride@gmail.com. We will feature all photos on our social media and select one family to receive a gift certificate for a meal from a local restaurant that offers delivery.
Invite your friends to our Day of Pink online event to help spread the word!
