Red Band Society's Griffin Gluck goes purple for #spiritday

Griffin Gluck who plays Charlie on FOX's Red Band Society, took a stand against bullying and recorded a message of support to LGBT youth for Spirit Day. Charlie is a young boy in a coma and the narrator of the series.


Red Band Society premiered this fall and tells the story of several young patients living in a hospital's pediatric ward. The show features Kenji (Wilson Cruz), a gay nurse while one of the patients has two moms.

Spirit Day, which takes place today, October 16, inspires millions to wear purple or "go purple" online in a united stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBT youth. Each year, Spirit Day draws the participation of celebrities, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, and individuals. Spirit Day is made possible by the generous support of its national partners PepsiCo and Wells Fargo, as well as official partners Comcast-NBCUniversal and Google, and supporting partner American Eagle Outfitters.

You can go purple now by putting on purple, posting about #spiritday, and sharing your favorite #spiritday posts on social media.
