Day of NO Silence

Day Of Silence is observed every year on the second Friday of April. This observance is led especially by the student community to bring awareness to the bullying of lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender students.

It is observed annually on the second Friday of April.

On this particular day, they vow to be silent for the whole day as a symbolic representation of the silencing of the LGBTQ+ community. The day is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

The Day of Silence has been held each year in April since 1996. Since 2011, the event has been held on the second Friday of April, except in 2018, when it was observed on Friday, April 27, 2020, when it was observed on Friday, April 24, 2021, when it was observed on Friday, April 23, and 2022, when it was observed on Friday, April 22.

The Day of Silence is organized by GLSEN. Students are encouraged to obtain permission from their school before organizing the event.

GLSEN states that hundreds of thousands of students at more than 8,000 schools participated in the 2008 Day of Silence.
