This is from my employer’s intranet. We have a employee resource group called PRISM (Pride, Respect, Inclusion for Sexual Minorities) which promotes respect and inclusion for those who identify as LGBTQ and their allies.
On October 17, 2013 millions of Americans will take a stand against bullying by wearing purple on Spirit Day in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. By going purple on Spirit Day, Q Center will once again take a visual stand against bullying.
Please join us by taking a photo of yourself wearing purple and emailing it to QBlog@pdxQcenter.org – We will feature the submissions on the blog next week for Spirit Day!
Spirit Day was started in 2010 by a high school student as a way to show support for LGBTQ youth and take a stand against bullying. With GLAAD’s help, millions of teachers, workplaces, media personalities and students wore purple, a color that symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Spirit Day now occurs annually on every third Thursday in October.
