There are millions of kids who are bullied, shunned and rejected every day for being different, or for being gay, or they are just perceived to be LGBT.
You can show your support for this voiceless minority, by participating in Spirit Day.
Today is Spirit Day! Spirit Day is a day to wear purple, in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, and to speak out against bullying.
Millions wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying.
Spirit Day was started in 2010 by high school student Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives.
Observed annually, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag.
Getting involved is easy -- participants are asked to simply "go purple" on October 17th as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
I’ll be wearing purple, and I hope that you will too.
Learn more & go purple at www.glaad.org/spiritday.
