Spirit Day 2011

I was going to post my review for Pretty Monsters today, I decided instead to go purple.


What is Spirit Day?
Millions of Americans 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 was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, 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 October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are. Learn more & go purple at www.glaad.org/spiritday 



I'll post my Pretty Monsters review tomorrow. But for now, click the the badge to find out more on Spirit Day from GLAAD.

Do your part.

It's important.

Later taters.
