Day of Pink Gala


The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity is proud to invite you to our 12th Anniversary Day of Pink Gala.

The gala is a free event. The goal of the Gala is not to raise money, but to build community and celebrate the success of the divers work of so many people to make our community a safer place.

There will be hors d’oeuvres provided free of charge, and beverages will be available through a cash bar. There will also be a silent auction to help raise funds for the work done by the CCGSD.

Our VIPink guests will be provided free beverages throughout the night, priority seating during the award ceremony, and will have their name added to the VIPink exclusive raffle.

The CCGSD is always focused on our work in schools, as such, all proceeds made from this event are directed into our programming across Canada.

This is a fully accessible event, and childcare will be available.

Recommended dresscode: Semi-formal.

April 12, 2017 marks the International Day of Pink. It is a day where communities across the country, and across the world, can unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying.

The International Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia when 2 straight high school students saw a gay student wearing a pink shirt being bullied. The 2 students intervened, but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic & transphobic bullying. They decided to purchase pink shirts, and a few days later got everyone at school to arrive wearing pink, standing in solidarity. The result was that an entire school took a stand and began working together to prevent homophobic & transphobic bullying.

The message was clear: anyone can bully, any can be victimized by bullying, but together we can stop it.

Each year on the second Wednesday of April, millions of people wear pink and take a stand. The Day of Pink is a symbol, a spark, that empowers and inspires youth across Canada to create amazing social change!
