Kirkland & Ellis lay down the law on anti-LGBTQ bullying for #SpiritDay


Kirkland & Ellis, one of the world's most elite law firms, celebrated Spirit Day, the most visible anti-bullying campaign, of which the firm is a Supporting Partner. We are so GLAAD to have their participation and support!

How did they going purple? Beyond social media, purple cupcakes are being served in all of their global offices. Yum! They also encouraged all staff across offices to wear purple, uniting against bullying.

Thanks, Kirkland & Ellis!

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.
