Bisexual community leaders go purple for #SpiritDay to stand against bullying

Today, bisexual organizations across the country are joining millions of people to go purple for Spirit Day to take a stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth. Leading bi advocacy groups Bisexual Organizing Project, the Bisexual Resource Center, and BiNet USA were among those bringing anti-bullying visibility to the bi community and its allies.

Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP) is the group that brings bi leaders together every year for the dynamic, informative, and communal event, the BECAUSE Conference. Today, BOP proudly proclaimed their participation in Spirit Day:

BiNet USA is a national organization working to accelerate acceptance to the bi community and partnered with GLAAD for the first and second annual BiWeek:

The BiCast, a podcast co-sponsored by BiNet, featured GLAAD Strategist Alexandra on a recent episode to urge the bi community to support its youth, and also posted widely on social media:


GLAAD is thrilled for the ongoing support from and collaboration with the bi community and its leaders, on Spirit Day and every 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.
