Huffington Post - over 5 years
Lights is a pretty and successful pop star. But that's now. Back when she was known as Valerie Poxleitner, she was just another teenage girl whose own light was dimmed by bullies for the crime of being different. "In high school I not only didn't have a whole lot of friends, I went to a lot of different schools because we moved a lot. I ended up just keeping to myself and trying to get my work done and do my thing. I wasn't particularly stylish. I was kind of lanky. I didn't grow into my body yet," Lights tells Huffington Post backstage at Free the Children's We Day youth rally in Calgary, where bullying has become a topic in the wake of Amanda Todd's suicide. "There'd be groups of girls that didn't like me, they didn't like that I smiled, that I was happy, that I worked hard and tried to get out of high school with good marks.

Huffington Post - over 5 years

This year's theme "stand up," encourages Canadians of all ages to acknowledge that bullying exists, but it's also important to strive for change. Kids Help Phone has put together a 30-second video featuring some of Canada's biggest names in the music industry, including Pierre Bouvier from Simple Plan, Jacob Hoggard from Hedley, and hosts from both MuchMusic and MTV Canada. Throughout the black and white video clip, artists hold uplifting phrases about hope and bullying, with a special cover of 'True Colors' playing in the background.

Huffington Post - over 5 years
While TIFF doesn't "officially" kick off until this evening, two swanky and swishy parties have already declared the festival open: the Producer's Ball and SKYY Vodka's Blue Alley bash. The Producer's Ball packed some 600 people into the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto (one of the hottest places in the city to host an event), and raised funds for Paul Haggis' Artists for Peace and Justice. Hosted by Drew and Jonathan Scott (of 'Property Brothers'), the fête was littered with fashionable and famous Canadian faces, including George Stroumboulopoulos, Fefe Dobson, Jonash Chernick and Emily Hampshire. A little further west, SKYY Vodka hosted a Moulin Rouge-meets-Cirque du Soleil outdoor soirée in an alleyway. Dubbed the "unofficial" kick-off to TIFF 2012, guests like Olympic Gold Medal Trampolinist Rosie MacLennan and actors Lyriq Bent, Gabrielle Reese and Tara Spencer-Nairn, sipped on festival-inspired cocktails while rocking some serious couture.
