Why I Wear Purple On Spirit Day

isupport_1200x627

Today, October 17th, 2013 is Spirit Day, a day to stand up against bullying and show your love & support for the LGBT community. Supporters of the cause are encouraged to “go purple” — by both wearing purple clothing and/or by adding a purple filter to your Twitter or Facebook pictures. Not sure how wearing purple is going to help LGBT youths or make any difference in the world? Check out my newest article Why I Wear Purple On Spirit Day, featured on both Thought Catalog and as an op-ed on The Advocate.

Happy Spirit Day, everyone! Stay strong!
