Yahoo! Shows Off Their Spirit Day Pride!

Yahoo! demonstrates their pride as they throw their support behind Spirit Day 2011 with a big bang!

An early supporter of Spirit Day, Yahoo! began spreading the word and posting about Spirit Day on the Yahoo! Pride Facebook Page, asking employees to go purple and take a stand against bullying.


Yahoo! really went all out for Spirit Day. Beyond going purple on Facebook and Twitter, Yahoo! asked employees to do the same and featured a blog post about Spirit Day on the Yahoo! OMG Blog, in which they tout the features of Spirit Day from its youth-inspired roots to its star studded power.

This week they sent out an e-mail to Yahoo! staff around the nation asking them to come to work dressed in their best Yahoo! or awesomely purple gear so they could do a staff photo to share. Today, Yahoo! gathered employees in their Spirit Day finest to show their support for LGBT youth and to take a stand against bullying. Check out their staff photo (which they also tweeted!)!


 

GLAAD would like to thank Yahoo! for taking such a visible stand against bullying and showing their support for Spirit Day and LGBT youth everywhere. On a day filled with so many supporters, companies like Yahoo! are a shining example of what a powerful message we can send by standing tall and proud for LGBT youth.
