The stars have come together for this GLAAD public service announcement to stress the importance of acceptance in every community. It is important that we as a community stand up for gay rights and acceptance, and with the help of Russell, Naya and Reverend Sharpton, let us all make a statement.
You can take part in making a statement this Thursday when millions of Americans will take part in a spirit day by wearing purple to stand against LGBT (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender) bullying and show support for LGBT youth.
Some of our favorite celebs including Mehcad Brooks, Conan O’Brien, Steve-O and Padma Lakshmi, corporations including AT&T, PepsiCo, Facebook and Yahoo!, and media outlets including CNBC, E! and MSNBC will all be wearing purple.
