A special “unofficial” holiday has been set up by members of Facebook to honor 6 boys and many others who have taken their lives due to homophobic abuse. The Holiday is being called “Spirit Day” and it will take place all day on October 20, 2010.
PURPLE represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality.
Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and schools.
In honor of the six youths whos lives were taken from them far too soon.
