💜 Spirit Day 💜
💜 Wear Purple to show your support Against LGBTQ+ Bullying 💜
In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010; it now however takes place on October 16. On this day people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT youth who are victims of bullying. Promoted by GLAAD, many Hollywood celebrities wear purple on this day to show their support of this cause, and many websites add a prominent purple shade to their design.
