Will you wear purple tomorrow (weds 10/20) ?,_2010

Too many young people have taken their lives because of anti-gay bullying. While there has been an outpouring of shock and support from public officials in the form of “It Gets Better” messages, we still must address the deeper societal issues driving a culture of relentless bullying – and we must send a strong message that such a culture is unacceptable.

To help send that message, we’ll be participating in a day of remembrance this Wednesday, October 20, by wearing purple. The idea for the event originated online, and nearly one million people are already participating on Facebook.

  • Yes, I will. In fact, I think I will go through my girls' dressers and find purple clothing for them, too.

    Thanks for the reminder!

  • Lol I get voted down because I choose to wear whatever color in my closet? Yes issues like this are important, but they are not how I plan my wardrobe.

  • Of course I'll wear purple, I was planning to anyway for the same reason...

    Answer by donnareedonLSD at 10:49 PM on Oct. 19, 2010

  • I would, but in all honesty...I don't think that I have one purple item of clothing in my entire wardrobe, lol. You'd think with all of the clothes I have, I'd have something purple, but nothing comes to mind. However, if I do find something...I'll wear it. :)
