Sundance Channel Pledges to go Purple in Support of LGBT Youth
Spirit Day 2011 is quickly approaching. Have you already made the pledge to “Go Purple” and show your support for LGBT youth?
The Sundance Channel has made the pledge in a huge way. On Thursday, October 20, the Sundance Channel’s employees will participate and show support for LGBT youth by wearing purple. The channel has also committed to turning its on-air logo purple for the entire day along with all of its social media logos. Additionally, stars of the Sundance Channel including David Nadelberg (Sundance Channel, The Mortified Sessions), Joe Zee (Sundance Channel, All on the Line with Joe Zee) and Garo Sparo (Sundance Channel, Unleashed by Garo) are among celebrities who will show support by wearing purple or changing their Twitter and Facebook photos for the day.
We are so excited to have the full cast of the new seasons of Sundance’s Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, a nominee this year at the GLAAD Media Awards, participating.
A number of celebrities, organizations, media outlets, corporations and faith partners will be joining the Sundance Channel in the Spirit Day pledge. You should too!
Some participants include Sonja Morgan (Real Housewives of New York), Andy Cohen (Bravo), Dr. Drew Pinksy (CNN’s Dr. Drew), American Federation of Teachers, Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), The Trevor Project, CNBC, E!, LOGO, MTV, USA, CNN, MSNBC, American Airlines, AT&T, Delta, Yahoo!, PepsiCo, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, The McGraw-Hill Companies, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church and Harvard Divinity School.
