The folks here at Philadelphia magazine honored Spirit Day by making a statement against anti-gay bullying. Pictured here, the publisher and members of the sales and marketing team showed off their LGBT pride.

Facebook also turned purple today with millions of Americans sending the message that gay bullying will not be tolerated. “The tragic suicides of our youth have started an important dialogue among Americans about the dangers of bullying,” explains GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios in a press statement, “and now is the time to show our children that millions of Americans accept and value them regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
