Haha, thank you! Happy Birthday and thank you for your support!
It’s another example of a graphic you could use for Spirit Day, but with your own picture :) and I had an extra space and nothing to put in it.
Don’t forget to wear your purple!
It is almost impossible for me to even believe that this year will be the fifth year in a row of running Spirit Day. It’s absolutely mind blowing to even think of.
For those of you that don’t know, I started Spirit Day in 2010 following the suicides of several LGBT teens, including kids like Asher Brown and Tyler Clementi. I wanted to bring awareness about the suicides to the greater world and with your help, we did. We let the world know that homophobic/transphobic bullying was not okay - that it could end in some pretty terrible stuff. With your help, homophobic bullying became a discussion, it became something people tried harder to think about and to consider when speaking to their friends in their every day lives. I can just remember finishing high school and hardly ever hearing anyone in my grade refer to someone else as a “fag” or some lame homework assignment as “gay.” It was so incredible.
However, homophobia and transphobia still exist. People are still bullied every day and are considering suicide as a real, honest option. Please, help me remind the world that we made an pledge - we said we would stand up to bullying and we will. Wear purple with me on October 16th, 2014 and stand up to bullying.
If you’d like to go the extra mile, reblog this post, tweet your favourite celebs and join the Facebook event. I encourage you to use whatever resources are at your disposal. If you’re good at public speaking, talk to your school/workplace. If you like to make videos, make a video. If you’re good at art, draw a picture and submit it to me so I can post it. Do whatever you can to spread the word because on October 16th, we will be turning the world purple!
There sure is! The fifth Spirit Day will be held on October 16, 2014!!!
Does the Marriott Hotel support ‘gay cures’? They’re again hosting a conference for a leading ‘gay cures’ group, the National Association of Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).
The American Psychological Association says that ‘gay cures’ have “serious potential to harm young people”.
All Out is working with our friends and allies at SumOfUs to team up our millions of members to double the threat to Marriott’s brand. SumOfUs is a new world-wide movement working to get businesses to put people and planet first.About SumofUs
This is crazy! During Spirit Day 2012, I’m pretty sure that I stayed at the Marriott Hotel in New York. Sign the petition because this is a terrible thing for the Marriott to be supporting. Let them know that what they’re doing is wrong.
