It is always heartening to see someone stand up for others who are being bullied and discriminated against. It is even more wonderful when the one who is standing up is a cop, and a good-looking man at that, who is standing up for homosexuals.
Luke Wilson, a police officer in Toronto, dyed his hair neon pink to make a statement against homophobia.
He posted a photo online of himself. He was holding a sign with the following hashtags: #StopBullyingNow and #DayofPink. As if this was not cool enough, he additionally promised that his hair was going to stay neon pink for every 1,000 retweets of the photo.
He dyed his hair in the honor of the International Day of Pink, as his hashtag suggests. The purpose of this day is to “raise awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny and all forms of bullying.”
Officer Wilson decided to dye his hair and see if it would go viral online, which it apparently did.
He went to the the Day of Pink rally as well. This event took place on Wednesday at Toronto’s Forest Hills Collegiate Institute. There were also other police officers there donning pink shirts under their uniforms.
There was even a police car decked out in pink rather than the normal blue. One officer was seen riding around in the car.
It is so great that there are police officers who are willing to get behind the cause of stopping bullying of those people who are different.
