IT GETS BETTER


It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

I wore my purple to work today and told EVERYONE ~exactly~ why I was wearing it.

And I made it obvious; purple shiney headband, and I flagged purple in my pocket.

Here's hoping that today broke through to SOMEONE; to show them that hatred isn't the way, or to show someone that they ARE loved by so many people!!
