Are you wearing your Spirit Day purple?
Going purple is easy:
- Wear something purple today - whether it's a purple scarf, purple tie, or an entirely purple outfit, you'll be taking a stand against bullying!
- Head over to www.glaad.org/spiritday to turn your Facebook and Twitter profile pics purple right now to show LGBT youth you support them.
- Share your photos with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Google+ with the hashtag #SpiritDay - some may even be featured on the Spirit Day website.
