Not trying to offend anyone or spark any debates, but I just wanted to spread the word about this event (even though it's already mid-day here and getting later in the day in most places, lol)

You may or may not have heard about the recent suicides related to anti-gay bullying in schools. I think there have been about 8 gay teens in the news within just the last couple of months.

A movement began and spread on Tumblr and Facebook, urging everyone to wear purple today, on October 20th, as a show of support against anti-LGBT bullying.

You can see the Facebook event here: Welcome to Facebook

Happy Trails,

I only found out about the purple day yesterday in school so I didn't get a chance to wear any :( And its soo sad about all the suicides...

I wondered why all the teachers were wearing purple today. I guess I know now.

I wore purple yesterday. I have a sibling and many friends who are gay and I support them in any way I can.
