GLAAD Spirit Day
Millions go purple on Spirit Day in a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. Observed annually since 2010, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, and public figures wear purple, which symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag.
Getting involved is easy — participants are asked to simply “go purple” on October 19 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
