Millions of Americans wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy -- participants are asked to simply "go purple" on October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.

El 20 de octubre, millones se visten de morado en el Día del Espíritu para mostar su apoyo para los jóvenes lesbianas, gay, bisexual y transgénero (LGBT) y para alzar la voz en contra del acoso y hostigamiento. Anímate a tomar parte de este dia: simplemente se trata de usar morado el 20 de octubre. Por más sencillo que sea, tiene mucho poder porque es un aporte importante hacia la creación de un mundo donde los jóvenes LGBT sean celebrados y aceptados por quiénes son. Cuéntanos tu historia. Súmate al color morado.
