Jill just won’t have it! She’s taking a stand and will be wearing purple for tomorrow’s Spirit Day!

The Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin has taken a stand — she will not put up with anti-LGBT bullying! Jill has now aligned with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) and will be wearing purple on Spirit Day Oct. 20 to send out the message that LGBT bullying HAS TO STOP!

“I will be wearing purple this Wednesday,” Jill says. “No child should be victim of bullying , and as parents, we need to teach our children that everyone deserves to be accepted for who they are.”

Spirit Day has one goal: “to show youth who are victims of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment that there is a vast community of people who support them.”

Jill will also be hosting the 9th Annual GLAAD OUT Auction in November in order to show her support.
