GO PURPLE YEAH by licchan GO PURPLE YEAH by licchan
Happy Spirit Day!

I'm not usually a very political person but this day is just too sweet to pass up.

SO HERE'S GAV AND CAINE IN PURPLE. Let them know if you have any bullies bothering you and they'll go break their face. Aw yeah. <3

Gav [Left] belongs to me
Caine [Right] belongs to ~fresh4u

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those of you that aren't aware, here's more info:

Wednesday Oct. 20 is Spirit Day, the day that the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is asking people to "Go Purple" to call attention to the deaths of six teenagers who committed suicide after reportedly being taunted because they were gay. - CBS

I personally believe this day goes hand in hand with the It Gets Better Project.

Many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can't imagine a future for themselves. So let's show them what our lives are like, let's show them what the future may hold in store for them.

Also, as some final thoughts:

Honestly if anybody wants to talk to me about this, please feel free to note me. While I'm certainly no motivational speaker or anything I can lend an ear.

I think Mr. Rogers says it best: You always make each day such a special day. You know how; by just your being you. There's only one person in the whole world like you, and people can like you exactly as you are.

Hang in there! Lots of love and purple today, hell yeah!

EDIT: Awww DA went purple too! Yay! [link]

B'aww. Gav looks like he will not put up with any bullying. It was nice that DA went purple (though a little late), and i hope you didn't get any asshole comments on this.
