Spirit Day!! Wear Purple & Write!!

Last year Canadian student Brittany McMillan created Spirit Day.  She asked that people wear purple in remembrance of the youth who have died by suicide due to homophobic bullying. 

We held a very successful rally at the legislative building to raise awareness. Our effort was to come together as a community, to say that this is not acceptable and to send a message of hope to queer youth. 

Since last year more youth have passed away because of bullying and discrimination.

Come and write your words of hope, inspiration and encouragement for the members of our community that need it most.

Our hope is to turn these messages into a book, posters, prints – the possibilities are endless!

You can also email your message to The Rainbow Resource Centre and we will post it on the wall for you.

I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you… and you… and you… gotta give em hope! ~ Harvey Milk
