Support for #SpiritDay continues to grow. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen turned her Twitter profile photo purple. And lots of celebrities joined us including Lila Downs, Patricia Velásquez, and many more celebrities from Spanish-language media networks Univision and Telemundo plan to participate.
"While every candidate running for President doesn't agree with us on issues of equality and acceptance for all LGBT people, certainly we can all agree that no kid deserves to be bullied or harassed simply for being who they are,"
GLAAD's Spanish-Language and Latino Media team has been reaching out to Latino celebrities, including many who star in Spanish-Language shows seen in the U.S. but also internationally, asking them to participate in Spirit Day. And they are stepping up to send a message of love and support to LGBT youth and against bullying.
