Thursday is GLAAD’s annual Spirit Day, in which LGBT supporters and allies are encouraged to “go purple” to take a stand against bullying and show support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.
From GLAAD’s website:
Millions go purple on Spirit Day in a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. Observed annually since 2010, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, and public figures wear purple, which symbolizes 'spirit' on the rainbow flag.
