Dig Out Your University Shirts!

5 Oct

If you’re as devastated as I have been these past few days over the influx of teenage suicides due to homophobic abuse, but are too busy with life or are unsure what you can do to help, here’s something easy:

This October 20th is going to be Spirit Day, and to honor the gay boys who’ve lost their lives all you have to do is show solidarity by wearing purple (The color purple from the rainbow flag). This small action doesn’t require any effort or detract from your schedule. And considering we attend NYU, it should be pretty easy to dig up from the bottom of your drawer that NYU Athletics T-shirt your parents bought you after you got accepted to college but have never worn since.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase and Billy Luca
