Bullying in schools does not need to be tolerated and the Day of Silence was established in 1996 to highlight the impact of this on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) students.

This annual event is for school, college and university students to go against their natural instincts to be noisy and take a vow of silence for the day. It is a serious issue though, with its aim being to bring attention to the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students. Hopefully this will assist in bringing it a stop to it to create safer places of education for them to study.

Those looking to get involved can visit the Day of Silence website for ideas about organizing an event in their school or college. They should remember to discuss this with teachers ahead of time to get agreement to the silence commencing.

I can’t wait. it should be a real holiday in my opinion because humans need to shut up once in a while


I’m making a slide to put up in my school to show awareness for this day.


this is the most absurd thing i’ve ever encountered. i thought school was for reading, writing and arithmetic? since when does the “gay agenda” take precedence over that? why don’t you take your agenda somewhere else instead of force feeding your corrupt lifestyles down everybody’s throat. how about a day of silence for the “christian lifestyle”? where people refrain from sex until marriage between a man and a woman? no, doesn’t fit your agenda? well neither does your perversion fit the agenda of millions of Americans
