Don’t forget today is Spirit Day!
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is sponsoring Spirit Day today, October 19th. Hopefully, millions of Americans will wear purple to speak out against bullying and to show support for GLBT youth.
Why Purple? It represents spirit on the rainbow flag. Participants will either wear purple on Spirit Day or change their social media profile pictures to purple using GLAAD’s Spirit Day apps available at http://glaad.org/spiritday. “By going purple for Spirit Day, millions of Americans are helping to send a clear message that no one should be bullied simply because of who they are,” states GLAAD President Herndon Graddick.
Has your day already started and you forgot to wear purple?
