Today, October 19th is #spiritday to support #lgbtq youth in the fight to #stopbullying. We wear purple today to honor the #strength one must have when faced with the horrific systematic mental assault that is being bullied. I'm using my #purple @beautyblender's today to point to the message that everyone is #beautiful, everyone is as unique as a #unicorn , and no one deserves to be bullied because of who they are or what they look like. I overcame the truly terrible #bullying that I went through every single day in school, and then later in my professional life, because I had an amazing support system. I hope by posting this message someone who is being bullied hears me: I support you, you are strong, and you will make it. Laugh in a bully's face, they are the ones who are weak.

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 glaad.org/spiritday. Follow @GLAAD on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr to keep up to date with #SpiritDay news.
