MTV, VH1, and Logo champion LGBTQ youth again for #SpiritDay as TRL "goes purple"

MTV, VH1, and Logo proudly show LGBTQ-inclusive programming all year long, but the networks have once again 'gone purple' in many fabulous ways for this year's #SpiritDay to show support for LGBTQ youth and stand against bullying. MTV, VH1, and Logo have participated since Spirit Day began in 2010, and have raised the bar yet again!

The network's shows, stars, and even on-air logos have all gone purple to celebrate the day. Join them by going purple on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and using the hashtag #SpiritDay. Find out more at glaad.org/spiritday.

Spirit Day vibes made a special appearance on TRL this afternoon! The hosts, audience, and even some of their guests, including Hayley Kiyoko and Lane Moore, wore purple outfits and the packed studio audience wore purple pins.

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.
