New Zealand’s Gay Olympian Blake Skjellerup Message To Bullied Teens

Been bullied at school? It’s time to take action. Join New Zealand Olympian Blake Skjellerup in writing to Prime Minister John Key to share your stories of bullying, so he can make our schools safer places for everyone.

After I left school, everything got better,? Skjellerup says in the video. ?I believe that you shouldn?t have to wait to leave school for things to get better. We can change things now. Bullying can affect anyone, regardless of race, sexuality or gender.?

Pink Shirt Day aims to show that bullying is not OK and won’t be tolerated. By encouraging the people of New Zealand to wear a Pink Shirt on the 14th of April 2011 we can help to raise awareness of bullying and show the massive amount of people who support taking a stance against bullying and believe that bullying should not be tolerated anywhere no matter what the reasons or circumstances are.
