Today, GLAAD staffers were excited to call one lucky #SpiritDay supporter to let him know that he and a friend won round-trip airfare, courtesy of Delta Air Lines, to Las Vegas to attend Planet Hollywood's "Britney: Piece of Me" show and meet Britney Spears! The winner, a 28 year-old named Owen, is a huge Britney Spears fan, so he was super excited to learn he had been randomly selected.
Don't forget to join Britney Spears by taking a stand against bullying for Spirit Day in support of LGBT youth. Go to www.glaad.org/spiritday to show your support, and wear purple this Thursday, October 15th for Spirit Day.

On October 15, Spirit Day inspires millions to "go purple" to support LGBT youth in a united stand against bullying. According to GLSEN's 2013 National School Climate Survey, 8 out of 10 LGBT students experience harassment at school, and over 60% of LGBT students who did report a bullying case said their school staff did nothing. Spirit Day draws the participation of celebrities, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, and individuals around the world to take a stand against bullying and show their support for LGBT youth.
