Take a stand with us, GLAAD and millions of other brave individuals as we show support for #SpiritDay against bullying tomorrow October 17th by wearing purple.
“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”- GLAAD
Bullying has become a growing problem towards the population. Sadly, the outcome of bullying often leads to victims feeling depressed, hopeless, unwanted and ultimately comitting suicide. As a nation of individuals, we need come together and bring awareness. Celebrities Nick Cannon and Darren Young have personally shown their support for SpiritDay and the importance of ending bullying and you can too!
