DeviantART celebrates Spirit Day
Back to index
October is the cyber bullying awareness month in the US, and today in particular is also Spirit Day, an international event to raise awareness of bullying. The day was started in 2010 as a response to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth who took their lives due to bullying. To help the cause, DeviantART is hosting a gallery
of works dedicated to the event.
Purple is the color for Spirit Day, and DA is encouraging its users to paint their avatars purple, and submit artwork to the gallery if they want to. Meanwhile, GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is hosting various events
across the web in order to raise awareness of the issue.
