Some of the many students and teachers sporting purple.

Millions wear purple on Spirit Day, October 17, as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by high school student Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals, and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag.
