Logo TV goes 'perfectly purple' for LGBT youth on #SpiritDay

Decked out in fierce fuchsia, Logo TV is taking a stand against bullying in solidarity with LGBT youth.  The channel's on-air logo as well as various other social media banners, logos and themes went purple for the day. Many of their programs and stars followed suit in sharing the Spirit Day message.

The Viacom property treated its fans with purple-themed perfection and spoke with young people at New York’s Hetrick-Martin Institute, which serves 2,000 homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth and is home to the Harvey Milk High School, about why they wear purple on Spirit Day.  Check out their video below.

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