Day of Silence is GLSEN’s annual day of action to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) students. In the United States, students take a day-long vow of silence to symbolically represent the silencing of LGBTQ students.

Day of Silence is a campaign that seeks to shed light on what many LGBTQ youth experience daily. Initially intended to focus on this problem within the school system, it has since expanded into workplaces, university campuses, and sporting events. Yearly, millions participate by staying silent for the duration of their day, representing the silencing of LGBTQ students.

Day of Silence takes place every April — this year on April 23. Millions are expected to participate in planned silence across universities, workplaces, and sporting events.

Day of Silence was created by a University of Virginia student named Maria Pulzetti. She felt that LGBTQ youth were consistently silenced and ignored by parents and administrators, and that their concerns and complaints were falling on deaf ears. Inspired by this, Maria created the Day of Silence as a one-time event held during the University’s LGBTQ pride week. She believed the day would promote awareness amongst those who might not have been tuned into these issues, by surrounding them with a silence they couldn’t help but notice.


The lives of LGBTQI students any where in the world matters.

Being trans and living in a more conservative environment, we go through this kind of dysphoria almost every other day. But on the bright side, there’s that one person that really cares enough( or tries) to actually address us accordingly, just as Elliott has😁

Norms are a fundamental concept in the social sciences. They are most commonly defined as rules or expectations that are socially enforced. Norms may be prescriptive (encouraging positive behavior; for example, “be honest”) or proscriptive (discouraging negative behavior; for example, “do not cheat. Lately, these norms have become statutory and toxic accounting to the reasons why tran persons are suicidal, depressed, traumatized and exposed to all manner of violence.

Norms which violates the rights of the LGBTQI+ persons excluding fairness, equity and justice for all humanities should be dismantled. We are all valid as humans.
