    Go Purple for Spirit Day

    NBCUniversal and Comcast are proud to partner with GLAAD and Go Purple on Thursday, October 16 for Spirit Day.

    Along with millions of others nationwide, NBCUniversal will also be taking a stand against bullying by sending a message of solidarity and acceptance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth.

    Eight out of 10 LGBT youth say they’ve been bullied at school because of who they are. By wearing purple for Spirit Day, you too can help send a powerful message that bullying is unacceptable.

    We also encourage you to:

    • Share your support by telling your friends on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram why you’re wearing purple using hashtags #SpiritDay
    • Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to participate.
