In 2007, a Grade 9 student in Nova Scotia faced homophobic taunts and threats of violence for wearing a pink shirt to school. As a sign of support, David Shepard and Travis Price bought and wore pink shirts to school. Other students at the school joined their movement to show support that sent a message to the school community that homophobia and bullying would not be tolerated.
