GLAAD LogoEach year in October, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation urges Americans to take a visible stand against the bullying of LGBT youth by wearing purple or going purple online. VH1 took part in the 2012 Spirit Day by turning its on-air logo and website purple, encouraging viewers to demonstrate their support of LGBT youth too.

VH1.com also honored Spirit Day by pulling together some of the most relevant, powerful moments from its reality shows. Clips included scenes from Basketball Wives LA, Single Ladies, La La’s Full Court Life and, most affectingly, Couples Therapy, in which Jonah Mowry, a gay teen, tells how bullying nearly drove him to suicide.
