Wear purple on October 20th and show you care

Care about what? The fact that gay kids feel so bullied and traumatized that they think suicide is their only option.

Humanist Life put an article up about the recent deaths of several tormented boys. Project Queer (among others) are promoting an awareness campaign and are asking everyone to wear purple on October 20th. On the LGBT flag, purple stands for spirit.

It’s also worth mentioning the “It Gets Better” project that’s related to all of this. Dan Savage hopes to get the message across to these kids that yeah, the bullying sucks ass but there’s a real good life waiting for them if they are willing to live through it. It’s hard every day, but worth it.
