Lots of us are wearing purple today, supporting Spirit Day, which started last year in response to the horrifying spate of LGBT teen suicides linked to bullying. But even if the color didn’t fit in your wardrobe, the wonders of social networking have made it possible to turn your profile pic purple, and we think that counts too. Of course, as with any cause, some of our fave celebs are lending their 140 characters to the effort. Here are some of the best so far:
“Glaad Spirit Day! I support LBGT youth against bullies! Put up your forcefields and don’t let anyone take your energy!!” — Adam Lambert
“You all better be wearing your purple skinny jeans tom for #SpiritDay – I know I will @MTVact.” — Vinny Guadagnino
“I’m celebrating GLAAD Spirit Day tomorrow to put a stop to bullying. Check out my PSA & wear purple to show ur support!” — Sara Gilbert
“Join me 2show ur support 4 the LGBT community on #SpiritDay -Oct 20! Change ur profile pic 2 one w/fierce purple! http://glaad.org/spiritday” — Tyra Banks
“Wearing purple for #spiritday. The things that make us different from each other make us beautiful. Be kind to others.” — Dita Von Teese
A bunch of others (Jonathan Knight, DJ Pauly D, Ricky Martin) tweeted the same message — “End anti-LGBT bullying – wear purple & make your profile pic purple for #SpiritDay 10/20 at http://twb.ly/brKAjY” — but we still want to give a shout out to them for doing it. Keep ‘em coming!
