Prince Poppycock ( John Quayle) says it gets better

One of my favorite new performers, whose character Prince Poppycock is a celebration of novel and different, speaks out against hate and bullying. When we don’t embrace difference we lose the chance to celebrate lives such as his. As he says “a rainbow wouldn’t be a rainbow if it were missing a single color.”

On October 20, 2010, Spirit Day, let’s commemorate the amazing lives the world has lost because of bullying by wearing one of those colors – purple. Lives lost that could have made the world just a little more beautiful.

The discussion continues.

My interview with Psychologist and Criminologist Renee Cummings about bullying …and she has a background in dealing with LGBT people. This was part of my commitment to Seth and Asher and I hope I did their memory proud.

Let’s remember them on October 20th, 2010 on Spirit Day and wear purple. If you choose to join me – thank you. I feel I could have done more for them but I guess we all could. I posted these interviews but that still seems like not enough. Let the lives of those who committed suicide because they were bullied for being different not be in vain.

Thank you Renee for being part of my contribution to the It Gets Better project.

Wear purple on the 20th !
