Today is Spirit Day – the day when millions go purple in a stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBT youth. Observed annually since 2010, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, and public figures wear purple, which symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag. Learn more about it at GLAAD. Also, see Brendan Jordan‘s video below, and in case you missed it, here’s his claim to fame.
