I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

WHITE HOUSE STAFF JOIN MILLIONS STANDING AGAINST BULLYING FOR SPIRIT DAY

Staff at the White House are wearing purple today, to celebrate LGBT anti-bullying event Spirit Day.

Each year, celebrities, media outlets, brands, landmarks, sports leagues, faith groups, school districts, universities, and everyday individuals join GLAAD on Spirit Day to go purple in a united stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBTQ youth.

Pop superstar Britney Spears used her Wednesday night concert at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas to enlist her fans in participating in Spirit Day, including providing the audience with Spirit Day swag and replacing her regularly multi-coloured confetti with all-purple confetti as she closed the show.

President Obama’s staff also took part in the event today, posing for a group photo in purple.

A spokesperson said: “We are all more free when we are treated as equals. Today, White House staff stand against bullying and in support of LGBTQ youth.”Advertisement

  1. One of the many reasons that I voted for President Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012 was for his commitment to issues of both equality and social justice. He has not disappointed me in this regard.
