Support LGBT youth, stop bullying, go #SpiritDay

 |  NCR Today

Spirit Day is Thursday, Oct. 17. It is a day when millions of people wear purple to support LGBT youth and oppose bullying. In addition to celebrities, landmarks, media outlets, and everyday people, congregations and faith organizations are also going purple.

Ross Murray over at GLAAD blogs about some of the Catholic and other faith-based groups participating.  In the social media realm, organizations and individuals are turning their icons, logos and profile photos purple to show support. GLADD has a Spirit Day app that turns your Facebook profile purple for the day.  The Twitter hashtag is #SpiritDay.
