Or want to do something more useful for Spirit Day?  Here are five things you can do to make it better for LGBT teenagers and non-teenagers.

Sign the Defense of All Families pledge.

Write a letter to the editor saying that, although suicides of LGBT teens are not making the headlines right now, you haven’t forgotten that there’s an epidemic of deadly bullying underway, and urging everyone to ask their Congressperson to co-sponsor H.R.975, the Anti-Bullying and Harassment Act of 2011.

Write your Congressperson, yourself. (It’s easy. Put your zip code in here. “E-mail me” or “Contact form” will be on your representative’s webpage.)

Come out as a supporter of LGBT equality. Tell one person who’s never heard it from you before how you feel.

Find an LGBT youth support center or Gay Straight Alliance near you
and send them a check.
