Despite CNN committing five segments to helping the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) celebrate the new "Spirit Day" against anti-gay bullying, GLAAD somehow left CNN out of their list of participating TV "news" outlets.
On her Facebook page, Canadian teen Brittany McMillan started the new day of obli-gay-tion, and wrote: "Many of [the teens] suffered from homophobic abuse in their schools or in their homes. We want to take a stand to say that we will not tolerate this. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that's exactly what we'd like all of you to have with you: spirit." On the GLAAD Blog, intern Max Gouttebroze listed all the media activism for "tolerance" and against "homophobia."
