The Day of Silence is an annual event that brings attention to anti-lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender bullying, harassment and discrimination in schools. According to the event’s Web site, www.dayofsilence.org, students and teachers across the country will spend the day in silence in an effort to symbolize the silence that lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender students face everyday. Organizers say that the national event, in its eleventh year, is one of the largest student-led actions in the country.
