Where did the idea come from?
How do I get involved?
It’s easy! Go purple now and wear purple on October 17th and help us create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are. You can also download our Spirit Day resource kit, which has ways you can turn your community purple. Spirit Day participants can also spread the word and tell their friends that they’re standing up against bullying.
