GLAAD: #SPIRITDAY IN LA

GLAAD: #SPIRITDAY IN LA

REPOST FROM: Huffington Post

Are you ready to go purple for Spirit Day?

GLAAD has released a new animated video in advance of the event, held on Oct. 15, encouraging supporters to wear purple to show their support for bullied lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth once again. Given that an estimated eight out of 10 LGBT youth reportedly say they’ve been bullied in the past year, the clip is perhaps more relevant than ever.

“Sometimes the smallest thing can mean the world,” the video’s narrator proclaims. “Take the pledge.”

Harold Moss, who is the creative director of FlickerLab, drew on his own personal experiences with bullying when he created the video for GLAAD.

“Bullying creates real despair and desperation. It can take a lot of years to shake it off,” he wrote on GLAAD’s YouTube page. “Layer on top of that someone trying to figure out their sexuality, and the fact that teachers and family might actually be part of the bullying, and it gets pretty grim. That’s why standing up to this kind of bullying is so vital for everyone to do, every day.”
