Vote for #SpiritDay in the 2012 Queerties!

Spirit Day, GLAAD’s anti-bullying campaign, has been nominated for “Best Meme of the Year” by Queerty for the 2012 Queerties! The Queerties honor  “the best (and occasionally worst) in politics, entertainment, sports, viral videos, eye candy and more.”

From the White House to the newsroom to Las Vegas to the classroom, millions participated in Spirit Day on October 19 by wearing purple or going purple online – all in a visible stand against bullying and in support of LGBT young people.

Wearing purple on Spirit Day has become a national symbol for allies and all those who want LGBT young people to know that they’re supported for who they are. GLAAD worked with hundreds of partners including national and local organizations, schools, celebrities, sports leagues, Spanish-language media, web sites, and corporations.

You can continue to stand up against bullying by voting Spirit Day as “Best Meme of the Year” at the 2012 Queerties!
