Spirit Day 2011 will happen Thursday October 20.
It was conceived last year by teen Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives.
On Spirit Day which will happen every October 20, individuals, schools, organizations,
corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear and encourage others to wear purple, which
in the BTLG community rainbow flag symbolizes spirit.
It is also organized as a way for people to show their support for TBLG youth and to speak out against bullying. All you have to do you be down with Spirit Day is simply wear purple on October 20 as we all continue to work to
create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who
Of course, if you wish to do more to stem the tide of bullying in our schools, then that all good too.
GLAAD Online Communications Manager Morgan Goode explains in this video why she’s wearing purple tomorrow.
