Friday marks another commemoration as well, which many Catholics might not know about. It’s called “Spirit Day,” an invitation to stand against bullying and violence targeting gay and lesbian students in American schools. This should be a no-brainer for Catholics, who are called by Christ to support those who suffer or struggle in any way, particularly those on the margins.
The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles will be celebrating Spirit Day with a special performance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and are offering a special discount for GLAAD Spirit Day participants to see the show and meet the dancers!
Clothing giant American Apparel has launched a #SpiritDay store featuring the retailer's purple clothing items. #SpiritDay supporters receive an exclusive 10% discount and American Apparel will donate an additional 10% of all proceeds to GLAAD!
