It’s almost that time folks!
It’s almost Spirit Day!!
Tomorrow, Thursday, October 20, millions will wear purple to show their support for the LGBT youth community.
Pioneered by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to bullying provoked suicides, it’s not just individuals taking part in the awareness. Schools, organizations, corporations, etc.. are all participating as well.
Celebrities like Ricky Martin, Cyndi Lauper, Conan O’Brien, Julianne Moore, Chaz Bono, and Mia Farrow, have all spoken out on their support. And we’re sure we’ll see a lot of other tweets about it too pretty soon!
Even MTV is changing their logo in support of raising awareness. Now THAT’s how we like our MTV!
Not only that but Facebook, Viacom, Delta, PepsiCo, Goldman Sachs, Yahoo!, and American Airlines are notifying employees and encouraging participation.
The lights at LAX airport are even turning purple!
So what about U? Hmmm, perezcious readers?? How will U be supporting #SpiritDay?? If you need any good ideas, GLAAD has a ton of them, including ways to purple-fy your Facebook or Twitter photos!
