Spirit Day, a day to recognise and end bullying towards LGBTQ / MOGAI people, is on Oct 19th this year.
Best colours are purple or a colour that represents queer people in your country. Spread messages of kindness, offer support, or (if you feel comfortable) talk about yourself or an important queer figure. This can be a celebrity, fashion designer, even your fabulous aunt!
Postcards can be store bought OR handmade. No advertisement or religious PCs, please.
NO 1s or non-sends in the past 6 months. If sending outside of your country, please allow 3-4 weeks after deadline to receive. If you don't see it by then, or if your partner did not mark Sent on time, please message me!
What is Spirit Day? In short, this is an international day to raise awareness and spread kindness, particularly towards LGBTQ/MOGAI members of society. The holiday was declared after the deaths of several teenagers in response to (significant) bullying.
If you think you don't know any LGBTQ people, you probably do (or did.) It might not have come up as relevant or they may not think you would be genuinely accepting. What can do you to show true support?
MOGAI stands for "Marginalized Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex." It is meant to be more inclusive than LGBTQIA+ and easier to remember than several letters, especially for those of us who were in the queer community when only the first 2-3 existed. Queer people aren't just "the kids" under 25, y'know? So now you know what that acronym is! It just didn't get much favour compared to the alternative.
