CBS is proud to participate in GLAAD’s 9th annual #SpiritDay and will be ‘going purple’ on Thursday, October 18th, 2018.
Millions of Americans and citizens throughout the world will wear purple on #SpiritDay in a stand against bullying and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth.
Did you know that 8 out of 10 LGBTQ students reported experiencing harassment frequently in school? It’s important to remind these youth, as well as their parents and peers, that they are appreciated and supported.
GLAAD is working to engage the participation of leading figures in the entertainment industry, as well as media outlets, organizations, corporations, schools and local communities.
As in previous years, CBS Entertainment Diversity and Inclusion is requesting for CBS, CBSTV and Showtime talent to take a stand against bullying by sending a strong message of support to youth across the country.
Talent can participate in #SpiritDay by creating a video message, taking a cast and crew photo wearing various shades of purple, turning their personal social media accounts purple and by sharing their support on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #SpiritDay.
