Spirit Day History
Spirit Day seeks to support LGBTQ youth by advocating against bullying. This day highlights the disproportionate harassment and bullying that LGBTQ students may face in their personal lives or at school. It aims to prevent bullying and show solidarity.
Spirit Day was started in 2010 by advocate Brittany McMillan. McMillan worked alongside the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to honor the memory of young LGBTQ people who lost their lives. Together, they promoted and encouraged a day where people would wear purple as a show of solidarity. Spirit Day is observed annually on October 15th.
