Today, October 17, 2019, millions of Americans and people around the world will “go purple” on Spirit Day in a stand against bullying and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) youth. In an effort to close the gap between growing legal protections and lived LGBTQ+ acceptance, GLAAD is once again leading the charge to inspire and engage the participation of individuals, celebrities, corporations, small businesses, media outlets, schools, local communities and even national landmarks. It is more important than ever to show LGBTQ youth and young people everywhere that you are committed to ensuring their ability to live safely and authentically. On Spirit Day, participants can easily demonstrate their support for LGBTQ kids, teens, and young adults simply by going purple: wearing it, talking about bullying, and taking action online and in local communities.
