A few of the students and educators participating in Spirit Day this year are making their voices heard, explaining why it's important to support the youngest members of the LGBT community through grassroots initiatives.
Spirit Day ambassador Darren Young is sending a message of support to LGBT youth for Spirit Day and encouraging others to do the same. The WWE Superstar has been taking to Twitter all week to take a stand against bullying and even tweeted a video.
OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is getting ready for Spirit Day, with both their on-air logo and social media channels set to go purple on Thursday, October 17 in support of LGBT youth. This is the first time that OWN has changed its logos to recognize a social initiative.
