iHeartMedia takes a stand against bullying for Spirit Day with Lady Gaga, Troye Sivan, and more!

Today, iHeartMedia and GLAAD announced that celebrities like Lady Gaga, Troye Sivan, Andy Grammer, and Elvis Duran recorded radio PSAs in support of Spirit Day and taking a stand against LGBTQ bullying. iHeartMedia has been a longtime supporter of Spirit Day, spreading the message of acceptance across the airwaves.

Listen to Lady Gaga's message:

Spirit Day began in 2010 as a way to show support for LGBTQ youth and take a stand against bullying. Following a string of high-profile suicide deaths of gay teens in 2010, GLAAD worked to involve millions of teachers, workplaces, celebrities, media outlets and students in going purple on social media or wearing purple, a color that symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag.

Check out what Troye Sivan has to say about Spirit Day:

Spirit Day now occurs every year on the third Thursday in October, during National Bullying Prevention Month, and has become the most visible day of support for LGBTQ youth.

Hear Elvis Duran's message:

This year GLAAD will celebrate Spirit Day on October 20 where we will all stand together; communities, corporations, celebrities, landmarks, faith groups, sports leagues, schools and so much more, to send a message of solidarity and acceptance to LGBTQ youth.
