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, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown, Billy Lucas (bottom)

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




There has been some discussion in the blogosphere about the original graphic being used for this post, noting that the photos of the deceased were almost certainly used without permission. I've spent some time this morning creating the graphic you now see above; feel free to use it in your own posts.
