GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) is going purple on October 17 for Spirit Day to stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth, just before the start of Ally Week.
Yes, Focus on the Family, let's get the conversation started: Your Day of Dialogue is 'ex-gay' advocacy
For the past few years, the anti-LGBT organization Focus on the Family has been trying to rebrand the event once known as the Day Of Truth so that it seems much less dogmatic than it was when it was controlled by the "ex-gay" organization Exodus International. This cosmetic change is reflected in the new name that Focus on the Family gave its event: Day of Dialogue.
In Cincinnati, the local chapter of GLSEN is being excluded from this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade because it is an LGBT-affiliated organization. "It's an Irish Catholic parade and we don't want any members of the gay and lesbian community to be affiliated."

Thank those adults in your life who have promised to go purple to stand against bullying.
