Ricky Martin, Paulina Rubio, Christian Chávez, Maria Celeste Arrarás y Muchos Más Apoyan a Jóvenes LGBT

Ricky Martin, Paulina Rubio, Christian Chávez, Maria Celeste Arrarás de Al Rojo Vivo, y muchos más vistieron de morado el 20 de octubre para conmemorar las vidas perdidas en los últimos meses debido al acoso anti-LGBT.

People en Español tambien participó, igual que Rodner Figueroa, el "fashionista" de El Gordo y la Flaca, quien habló de manera muy conmovedora sobre el acoso y le agregó un pañuelo morado al saco de Raul de Molina. Varios otros programas hicieron segmentos sobre el Día del Espíritu, incluyendo  Primer Impacto en Univision.

Spirit Day, o Día del Espíritu fue creado para conmemorar los jóvenes que se han quitado la vida por causa de la intimidación anti-LGBT. Una adolescente, Brittany McMillan, inicialmente publicó el evento en Facebook que declaró que el 20 de octubre será  conocido como “Spirit Day,” o “Día del Espíritu,” pero luego se convirtió en un evento nacional que es apoyado por GLAAD.

Es un llamado al público para reconocer que el acoso anti-LGBT no es tolerado, y GLAAD le pidio a la comunidad y nuestros aliados que se vistan de morado para demostrar el apoyo hacia los afectados por este tipo de acoso.

Ricky Martin, Paulina Rubio,  the openly gay former member of the Mexican supergroup RBD, Christian Chávez and Maria Celeste Arrarás,  host of Al Rojo Vivo on Telemundo, and others  supported Spirit Day by wearing purple on October 20th to commemorate the lives lost in recent months due to anti-LGBT bullying.

People en Español  participated in the campaign, as did Rodner Figueroa, the fashion expert on El Gordo y la Flaca on Univision, who spoke movingly about youth suicide and added a purple scarf to host Raul de Molina’s ensemble. Numerous other Spanish-language programs included segments on Spirit Day, including Primer Impacto on Univision.

Spirit Day was created to commemorate youth who have taken their lives after being victims of anti-LGBT bullying. Teenager Brittany McMillan initially created the Facebook event which declared October 20th as as “Spirit Day,” and it has become a national event supported by GLAAD.

It is a call to the public to recognize that anti-LGBT bullying will not be tolerated, and we ask that you wear purple to show your support for those who suffer this type of harassment.
