Today is Spirit Day



Image and message via Metro Dystopia:

October 20th is Spirit Day here at Metro Dystopia [and Salmagundi] and at other blogs, places of work, schools and wherever gays and lesbians live and breathe.

Spirit Day was started by Brittany McMillan, and on the 20th we will wear purple in honor of the 7 gay boys who committed suicide recently due to homophobic abuse in their homes or at their schools.

Purple represents Spirit on the GLBTQ flag and that’s exactly what the sponsors of Spirit Day would like all of you to have with you: spirit and something purple to wear on that day in celebration of the spirits and lost lives of these seven young men.

Tell your blog readers, friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools about Spirit Day and why it’s so important.

Our hearts go out to Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Billy Lucas and Cody J. Barker (picture not shown). You are all loved.

Thank you, Stan
