Are you wearing purple today?¬†I sure as hell am as it’s Spirit Day! Today, millions of people are taking a stand against LGBTQ bullying including some of your fave celebs, who stopped by MTV HQ to pose in purple for us!

Spirit Day was started in 2010 by a high school student named Brittany McMillan as a way to show support for LGBTQ youth and take a stand against bullying. And why purple? It’s the color that symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. We already have a list of celebs who are rocking all purple everything today and below are a few more showing love for the day. Coincidentally, most of their names start with “B.”

OK, what’s not to love about the guy who played Stefon on SNL? LGBTQ and straight people everywhere were jealous of his epic wedding. DJ Baby Bok Choy even attended the nuptials!

+ Betty Who

Not sure who she is? Um, yes, you do. Betty Who is the voice behind “Somebody Loves You.” You know, the BEAUTIFUL LOVE SONG of this famed, Home Depot same-sex marriage proposal!

+ LMFAO’S SkyBlu

We’d like to think that LMFAO stands for Lesbians Make F***ing Awesome Offspring. Regardless, all people who wear purple today are sexy and SkyBlu knows it.

+ Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie

Brendon might writes sins, not tragedies but he’s neither of those things. He was a victim of bullying in high school and said he was “picked on for being lower-middle class in schools where most of the children came from wealthier families.” Love that he’s paying it forward and donning purple with pride.

+ Brandon Boyd

Brandon Boyd¬†further proves that he’s a peaceful dude 4 life in his lovely Spirit Day photo. Fun fact about Brando: He has a Buddhist mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, on his forearm. The mantra signifies these qualities: generosity, ethics, patience, diligence, renunciation and wisdom. Maybe next year he’ll get a spirit-themed tattoo?
