It's Spirit Day everyone!
Thanks to Brittany McMillan, October 20 is a dedicated day of LGBT support and youth suicide awareness.
Even corporations are engaging in the awareness this year! From LAX lighting up purple to Viacom, Pepsi, American Airlines, and Delta employees wearing purple, it really seems to be catching on!
One major company, one we're all familiar with, is making it real easy to show your support online by purple-fying your profile picture!
Yep, Facebook teamed up with GLAAD to make the color change possible. By clicking here, you could purple-fy your pic in an instant!
Facebook's diversity page recently updated their status to:
On Thursday, Oct. 20, we encourage you to wear purple as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying.
This isn't the only act of open acceptance displayed by Facebook. Earlier this year, they added civil union and domestic partnership to their list of relationship statuses.
Thanks, Mark Zuckerberg! 'preshade it!
