I listen to GLAAD a lot. They tell me that tomorrow, Thursday, Oct 20th, is Spirit Day and we should all wear purple as a sign of support for GLBT youth and to speak out against bullying. Naturally, this awesome idea was started by a teenager:
Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, 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 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
