October 20th has been declared Wear Purple Day to raise awareness about the bullying that LGBT teens go through, especially considering the recent amount of suicides of youth going through this. I am a big supporter of this cause as some of the closest people to me are part of the LGBT community. Bullying people for their sexuality is akin to bullying people based on race, gender, disabilities…all things we cannot change about ourselves.
If you support the right for youths to live without fear of harrassment or bullying because of whom they are, join us and wear purple today!
