Barilla and Hannah Hart use their noodles against bullying on #SpiritDay

Barilla, a Supporting Partner of the world's most visible anti-bullying campaign, has partnered with YouTuber, Food Network star, and GLAAD board member Hannah Hart to support LGBTQ youth and stand against bullying for Spirit Day. Hannah has designed a t-shirt with Represent, a platform that raises money for social good causes by partnering with celebrities and creating original apparel representing culture, community, and creativity. The design, with an apropos pasta pun, is available to purchase at Hannah's Represent page. GLAAD will receive a portion of the proceeds to continue work with LGBTQ youth and Barilla is matching donations.

Hannah posted additional tweets and even released a new video with fellow content creator Raymond Braun to raise awareness about bullying and how it impacts people with intersecting marginalized identities.

About Spirit Day

Each year, millions go purple for GLAAD's Spirit Day to support LGBTQ youth in a united stand against bullying. Started in 2010 by high school student Brittany McMillan in response to numerous young LGBTQ lives lost to suicide, Spirit Day now draws the participation of celebrities, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, and advocates around the world, all joining together to stand against bullying and support LGBTQ youth.

As anti-LGBTQ policies, hate crimes, and harassment are on the rise, it is now especially important to let all marginalized youth know they are supported. This year, Spirit Day is on October 19, 2017. Take the Spirit Day pledge to show LGBTQ youth you've got their backs at Follow @GLAAD on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr to keep up to date with #SpiritDay news.
