Spirit Day is Coming

Tue Oct 16, 2012, 9:00 AM

Spirit Day



Save the date! Spirit Day is Friday, October 19th! Which means you can show your support for the LGBT community by doing a number of things, from raising awareness through articles, artwork, literature or simply sporting the team colors on and/or offline. What colors?

Purpleh!


The color that represents Spirit Day is purple! Which brings us to the challenge portion of Spirit Day!

The Purple Challenge



The Purple Challenge is simple, go one day (October 19th) using only one color during your daily adventure on deviantART:  purple. Here are some places you can pimp out the color purple:

:bulletpurple: Your avatar. Use a simple photo editing program to temporarily turn your avatar purple.
:bulletpurple: A featured deviation on your page.
:bulletpurple: A collection of purple deviations.
:bulletpurple: Your devID.
:bulletpurple: Use only purple emoticons! :meow:
:bulletpurple: In journal skins.
:bulletpurple: In a deviation!

Everyone is widely encouraged to participate and suggest deviations related to the occasion to the ^Community Volunteers. See the following FAQ for a complete list:


From Around the Community



Spirit Day is coming.
  
This is a subject that is close to me, for lots of obvious reasons, but that's not important. What's important is that you reach out. Doesn't matter how much or how little, you don't have to quantify your actions. Just be in the know, be aware, lend a hand. Make the world a better place for it.
  Spirit DaySpirit Day is coming! :love:  On Friday 19th October, the world goes purple in support of the fight against sexuality related bullying. Nichrysalis already posted a great article about Spirit Day and how you can participate :squee:
There is also a category specially for Spirit Day related deviations, in Community Projects > Awareness. You can already submit to the Spirit Day 2012 category - so collect your favourite art tools and show your support :dalove:
:peace:
Thanks to the groups shown to the right for requesting to submit this journal :meow:

This is my college color, so about 90% of campus was already wearing it. I hardly ever wear purple normally though, so I was happy to have things to wear yesterday. :)

What color do we change our icon to show that we most certainly do not support this day?

That's something I'd like to know too.
I have nothing personal against these people but I was raised that the whole concept of homosexuality is wrong and not to be talked of.

Spirit day isn't just about LGBT. It's about raising awareness for bullying, and trying to put a stop to it. Maybe you think that homosexuality is wrong, but do you think it's right to bully these people just because they're homosexual?

RaspberryFanta Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't think it's right to bully anyone, I see your point and agree with you there. :)
Also on a similar note, I'd like to mention, what are people doing about the people who get bullied for not standing for homosexuality rights? I'm just wondering, I'm not aiming that at anyone in particular.

I do not know, I'm not sure if that side of coin has been organized.

Be aware though, that Spirit Day isn't promoting LGBT outright, but is about preventing bullying and its effects on individuals through awareness, especially bullying towards those who associate themselves as LGBT.

:dummy: What does LGBT stand for?
Reply
:iconnichrysalis:
Nichrysalis Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
LGBT stands for: lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans. and is the most common abbreviation people are familiar with that encompasses as many sexual orientations and gender identities as possible. The longest abbreviation I've seen is QUILTBAG, which stands for:

Q = cisgender or cissexual
U = ?
I = intersex (I think)
L = lesbian
T = transgender or transsexual
B = bisexual
A = asexual
G = gay

Hope this helps. :iconheartpurpleplz:
