Wear a Purple Shirt Day Wednesday October 20th

I am sure some of us have already received mass amounts of emails from Facebook inviting us to one of many events created for this but I am sure not everyone knows about this event for tomorrow and so I though it would be appropriate to post about this topic because I believe certain people within this subculture have been or are currently being bullied on any number of their differences whether it be aesthetic, sexuality or personality. And I believe it's important to talk about this subject

Wednesday October 20th 2010 will be "Wear a Purple Shirt Day" in honour of the 6 dead gay teens all of whom committed suicide because of bullying (off course this is not limited to just these teens but in honour of anyone who lost their life because of similar circumstances!) This idea of the event is simple wear a purple shirt.

I have seen a variation which is "Wear a Pink Shirt Day" as well but both event are to discourage bullying or demonstrate your thoughs on the matter.

I am just curious if anyone will be wearing a purple or even pink lolita outfit to demonstrate you stance on the subject? 

Edit: Lolitas should post their coordination tomorrow on Daily Lolita :) or perhaps create a thread here :)
