Raymond Braun takes social media by storm for #SpiritDay!

YouTube sensation Raymond Braun spent much of his Spirit Day supporting LGBT youth across various platforms, both in person and on social media. Through his Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, Raymond has been voicing his support for the LGBT youth in the fight against bullying.

Not only did he go purple across all of his social media accounts, but Raymond also attended an event hosted by GLAAD at Beethoven Elementary School in the Los Angeles Unified School District. This Spirit Day rally was the first of its kind, encouraging students, parents, faculty, and staff to "go purple" in support of LGBT youth worldwide. Raymond attended the rally to show his support for these brave elementary school students who wore purple in support of their classmates.

Raymond Braun also held a Periscope chat with his fans, which you can view here. In his chat, Raymond talked about the importance of Spirit Day, his experience at the elementary school rally, and a few tips for coming out. He even wore purple on his toes, to show his Spirit Day pride.

He made this Spirit Day so much more memorable with his support and involvement.

About Spirit Day

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.
