Spirit Day

October 20

Spirit Day was started by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan in 2010 in response to bullying-related student suicides. According to GLAAD, “LGBTQ youth disproportionately face bullying and harassment because of their identities. Each year, millions go purple for Spirit Day to support LGBTQ youth in a united stand against bullying. Pledging to ʻgo purpleʻ on Spirit Day is a way for everyone — global and local brands and companies, world leaders, celebrities, neighbors, parents, classmates, and friends — to visibly show solidarity with youth and to take part in the largest, most visible LGBTQ anti-bullying campaign in the world.”
