Toronto cop Luke Watson has taken a colorful stand against homophobia and bullying.
In honor of International Day of Pink, which raises awareness of homophobia and transphobia, the officer dyed his hair hot pink to fight LGBT discrimination, and is letting Twitter users choose how long he keeps the new ‘do.
Watson promised his followers that for every 1,000 retweets of a picture of his new style, he’ll keep the hair color for another week.
The Day of Pink was started by two straight Canadian students who wanted to show solidarity with a gay classmate who was being bullied for his pink shirt. High schools around Canada host events and change their school colors to pink every year.
That's awesome! Good for him, the two boys that started "Day of Pink", and people who participate :) Things like this help restore my faith in humanity a bit more.
