In response to the tragic suicides of gay teens who were bullied, people around the world took part in Spirit Day hoping to put a much-needed end to the harassment. Spearheaded by GLAAD, Spirit Day urged people to wear purple to raise awareness and show support for the young people who took their lives due to LGBT discrimination.
Now, I am inspired. While wearing a unified colour for one day won’t change the world, if you decide to take on something with personal meaning and incorporate small reminders into your life to trigger LGBT activism, you can really make a difference. I have created my capsule wardrobe as some sort of crazy sartorial inspiration. Feeling very Gok Wan here.
