Wear Purple on October 20 in Memory of Six Gay Boys who Recently Committed Suicide

It may be "off topic" for my blog, but I plan to participate and encourage you to do so as well.


date: Wednesday, October 20, 201o
where: Everywhere
cost: Nothing
dress code: PURPLE

*This event was not created by me. It was created by someone who cares deeply on Tumblr, and I am only spreading the word.*

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 and 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 and Billy Lucas. You are loved.

Join this event and invite everyone on your friends list. Don't let their deaths be for nothing. Let it mean something, and let's do something to change this country for once.
