What Is A Bully?

In the United States, Day of Silence, was observed on April 12th 2019. It is a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing, bullying and erasure of LGBTQ people at school.

Here in India, not much data is available on bullying in educational institutions let alone on bullying of queer children and young adults. But we do know that it happens. It happens every single day. So for those who are experiencing this pain, please speak to a responsible/trusting adult around you. Your feelings valid. And for others, don’t be a silent observer, step up and speak!
