People 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 is observed annually in October and the event was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives.
Individuals, schools, organizations, and corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy -- participants are asked to simply "go purple"on Spirit Day as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
