Spirit Day, a commemoration to support LGBT teens who face bullying, is Thursday, October 20th. Many people are participating by wearing purple, while others are participating online. Last year on Facebook, millions of people signed up to change their avatar to purple. DeviantART's 2010 Spirit Day article is the most +loved article of all time on deviantART.

If you'd like to show your support on deviantART, change your avatar to purple!

As Wikipedia states:
"In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010, in which people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT young people who are victims of bullying. Promoted by GLAAD, many Hollywood celebrities wore purple on this day to show their support of this cause, and many websites added a prominent purple shade to their design. The name, Spirit Day comes from the purple stripe of the Rainbow Flag, defined by Gilbert Baker, creator of that flag, as 'representing "spirit"'."

You can overlay your current avatar with a purple hue or use one of the avatars provided below:
