Today, October 19th, wear and promote purple as much as possible. Join millions of people who will be donning purple for Spirit Day promoting the ban of bullying. Post photos of you and your friends wearing purple to Twitter and Instagram with hashtag #SpiritDay. And, see which celebrities and public figures are going purple at http://glaad.org/spiritday.

Millions wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day started in 2010 as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Every year schools, sports leagues, organizations, churches, companies and stars stand up to bullying and "go purple."

Getting involved is easy and free! Who's going purple for Spirit Day? Participants include the NBA, Facebook, Times Square, Reba McEntire, Wendy Williams, Shaquille O'Neal, George Takei, Shay Mitchell, the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, Yahoo!, NBCUniversal, Toyota, Janet Mock, Good Morning America, Zach Wahls and the New York Stock Exchange
