Hoy es #SpiritDay cuando nos vestimos de morada para llamar atención al bullying o acoso escolar en contra de jóvenes LGBT. Entre los participantes ya se han sumado el elenco de Un Nuevo Día en Telemundo y el elenco de Despierta América en Univision.
Support for #SpiritDay continues to grow. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen turned her Twitter profile photo purple. And lots of celebrities joined us including Lila Downs, Patricia Velásquez, and many more celebrities from Spanish-language media networks Univision and Telemundo plan to participate.
GLAAD's Spanish-Language and Latino Media team has been reaching out to Latino celebrities, including many who star in Spanish-Language shows seen in the U.S. but also internationally, asking them to participate in Spirit Day. And they are stepping up to send a message of love and support to LGBT youth and against bullying.
Spanish-language Univision news recently published a special multi-media package, "Campeones de la Igualdad" on its site that profiles some of the couples who helped bring about the historic Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.
George Constantinou and Farid Ali-Lancheros were two of the many couples who shared their stories at an April 27 rally in New York City, and their message, in both English and Spanish, was beautiful—as are their kids, who stole the show.
