The Sundance Channel going purple to support LGBT youth on #SpiritDay

The Sundance Channel, home to inclusive programming such as Push Girls, TransGeneration, Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, will be supporting LGBT youth and taking a standing against bullying on Spirit Day on Friday, October 19.

You can join us for Spirit Day by RSVPing on Facebook to wear purple on October 19 and going purple today on Facebook and Twitter.

The network’s on-air logo will turn purple for Spirit Day and the channel’s website will get a purple overhaul. Sundance will support #SpiritDay through social media, including a photo of staff dressed in their best purple attire on The Sundance Channel’s official Facebook page.

Take a stand against bullying and support LGBT youth by participating in Spirit Day on Friday, October 19. To get involved, simply go purple on October 19 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are accepted for who they are. You can download GLAAD’s Spirit Day resource kit which contains tools to get your local community involved. Spirit Day participants can also spread the word and tell their friends they’re standing up against bullying, download the Spirit Day app for iPhone and Android, and text PURPLE to 80888 to donate $5 to support the important work GLAAD, GLSEN and The Trevor Project do every day to end bullying and support LGBT youth. Another way to celebrate Spirit Day is to encourage the presidential candidates to come out against bullying by signing a new petition asking them to wear purple on October 19 and visit the American Apparel #SpiritDay store to get your own purple gear with a 10% discount and 10% of proceeds going to GLAAD.
