On April 19, 2013 the 17 annual Day of Silence will be held. All over the
country thousands of people will go a day without speaking to bring attention to
anti-LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) bullying and
harassment in schools.
The University of Virginia was the first to start this in 1996. The Day of
Silence is the largest student ran action that hopes to make schools safer, no matter
what your sexual orientation, gender identity, or your gender expressions is.
