LGBTQIA+ Spirit Day October 20th 2022

GLADD Spirit Day 2022

The NFL working in partnership with GLADD, is supporting LGBTQIA+ Spirit Day, October 20th, 2022 equality with their new PSA. This PSA is so important because it features NFL Network talent Kimmi Chex, Emmy award-winning James Palmer, sportscaster MJ Acosta Ruiz and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Linebacker Carl Nassib. This PSA also features members of the Carolina Panthers Top Cats Cheerleaders, Javontre Booker, Ebonee Bryant-Smith, Chris Crawford, and Justine Lindsay – who became the NFL’s first openly transgender cheerleader this year. This is such an important step for the NFL to take to show their support for the LGBTQIA+ community.

“Spirit Day is the most visible day of the year when the world comes together to take a stand against LGBTQ youth bullying. And by wearing purple, it’s really the color of spirit, it’s a color that our community really connects with,” Anthony Allen Ramos said in the interview.

We are so grateful for their partnership and hope that this will inspire other organizations to follow suit.
