Elvis Duran and the Morning Show supports LGBT youth on #SpiritDay

Nationally famed out radio host Elvis Duran and his Morning Show crew went purple for #SpiritDay yesterday to show their support for LGBT youth and stand against bullying. Duran even gave an on-air shout out encouraging listeners to go purple and share their pictures on social media, check it out below!

Duran and his crew were sporting their custom #SpiritDay tees. Elvis Duran and The Morning Show served as #SpiritDay Ambassadors in 2013 and the show has participated regularly since.

On October 15, Spirit Day inspired 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 drew the participation of celebrities, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, and individuals around the world who united to take a stand against bullying and show their support for LGBT youth.
