October 20th is a day of Honor

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, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Billy Lucas and Cody J. Barker (picture not shown). You are all loved.

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


  1. It's tragic that these seven beautiful young men have lost their lives because of cruelty and hate. I hope that these tragedies have made people stop and think more about their words and actions.

  2. Thanks for the heads up - A sad state of affairs all round...

    Loving the red you have going on....


  3. I hope so, Eyre and EH. Bullies have been around since the beginning of time, so I wonder if it will ever really stop. I've never understood how some people love making others feel so badly about their lives. It's so sad.

    Thank you, EH:) I like the red,too!
