Jenni “JWOWW” Farley is one of the official ambassadors for this year’s Spirit Day! In the past she’s shown her support for LGBTQ rights by posing for NOH8 and taking part in NYC’s Gay Pride Parade. And she’s def donned purple for Spirit Day before!
+ Nev Schulman
MTV has partnered up with Spirit Day, and don’t be surprised to see a lot of MTV talent taking part in this purple-hued day. Nev Schulman and his partner in crime, Max Joseph, from “Catfish” are also working as ambassadors and getting their purple on to show support for LGBTQ rights.
Purple glitter, anyone? Just call her Ambassador Ke$ha! Speaking about the issues that can come from labeling people as “gay” or “straight” or whatever, she said, “I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”
+ Macklemore + Ryan Lewis
After coming out with their awesome ally song “Same Love” and winning Best Video With a Social Message at the 2013 Video Music Awards, you know Macklemore and Ryan Lewis would HAFTA get involved with Spirit Day. These guys are also ambassadors!
Like her co-star JWOWW, Snooks is all about LGBTQ rights. She’s also posed for NOH8 (the official photos are coming out soon!) and gotten involved with various LGBTQ events. But we’re wondering: Do they make purple animal prints for Ambassador Snooki to wear today? And can she wear it on her next DWTS performance?!
+ Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato often speaks about self-acceptance and self-esteem, and she knows the importance of LGBTQ youth growing up in a supportive environment as opposed to one filled with shame and bullying. She’s also thrown her support behind Spirit Day by becoming an official participant.
+ Jason Collins
This past year Jason Collins became the first openly gay player in the NBA. Since then he’s been outspoken about LGBTQ rights, and even introduced Macklemore at the VMAs. We’re thrilled to see him continue his much-needed support by being an ambassador for Spirit Day!
+ Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell showed support for same-sex marriage by waiting until the Supreme Court defeats of DOMA and Prop 8 to become engaged to her partner, Dax Shepard. But there is still a way to go before everyone in America can marry the person they love, and the kindhearted actress is participating in today’s events to help the cause.
+ Kelly Osbourne
You could say Kelly’s got so much spirit her hair will turn purple! Not everyone can make purple hair work, but she can, and it’s great to see her becoming an active participant in today’s events and the larger equality movement.
