CBS Stars Go Purple for Spirit Day

CBS turned their eye purple this Spirit Day, with the casts of some of the most popular shows in primetime going purple to take a stand against bullying and show their support for LGBTQ youth.

Allison Janney, Anna Faris, and the cast of "Mom" stood up and insisted that we listen our moms!

And Allison Janney didn’t stop there!

 You can always count on the hosts of “The Talk” to come through for important causes.

 Marcia Gay Harden and the cast of “Code Black” doesn’t just work to save lives on screen… but off-screen as well!

 Shemar Moore and the cast of “S.W.A.T.” showed their swagger.

 “9JKL” FTW + SD2017!!!

Longtime GLAAD ally (and former staff member) Wilson Cruz from “Star Trek: Discovery” never ceases to lead the charge for LGBTQ youth.

Consider us a part of #TeamScorpion. 

Kelen Coleman from “Me, MYSELF, & I” knows how to take a stand!

As does her co-star, Sharon Lawrence…

Alan Cumming and the cast of "Instinct" is feeling the spirit: 

Thank you, Madame Secretary!

Living Biblically has us, well, living!

As does Camryn Manheim: 

Be a "Bull," not a bully!

Brandon Rudat and Nicole Crites from CBS affiliate 3TV News in Phoenix helped turn Arizona purple.

A major shout out to CBS Entertainment Diversity for being GLAAD allies on so many levels. Your company's commitment to anti-bullying and LGBTQ youth resonates far & wide!

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.
