#spiritday is around the corner

^^Marcel Neergaard's #spirit day video. Marcel started a successfull petion early this year directed at rescinding an educational "Reformer of the Year" honor bestowed upon John Ragan, author of Tennessee's Don't Say Gay bill. (Marcel's story here)

Started by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan in 2010, Spirit Day is promoted by GLAAD and is observed by 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. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow. Go purple on October 20th!
