What is Spiritday?

紫色校园日是什么?

Spirit Day is an annual LGBTQ+ awareness day observed on the third Thursday in October. This year it takes place on October 18th. Started in 2010 by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan, it was initially created in response to a rash of widely publicized bullying-related suicides of gay school students in 2010. Promoted by GLAAD and CSYN, observers wear the color purple as a visible sign of support for LGBTQ youth and against bullying , as well as to honor LGBTQ victims of suicide. Spirit Day’s message of love and acceptance reached more people than ever before.

紫色校园日是在每年十月的第三个周四,旨在让人们意识到性别的多样性的节日。今年,将设在10月18日。它最初在2010年由加拿大少年Brittany McMillan发起,针对那年发生的多起同志学生因遭欺凌而自杀的事件。同性恋者反歧视联盟(GLAAD)和CSYN一起,提倡人们穿戴紫色来作为支持性少数青少年的象征,同时以此纪念那些受欺凌的性少数自杀者。紫色校园日让爱与包容的主旨深入了更多人内心。

The Rose Boy​

玫瑰少年叶永志

“Rose boy” Yeh Yung-chih’s story took place 18 years ago. Because of his femininity, his classmates would often pull down his pants, which made him fearful of going to the toilet during breaks. In his third year in junior high school, he left the classroom five minutes before a music class ended and went to the restroom, and was later discovered lying on the floor in a pool of blood. He later died in the hospital despite doctors’ effort to save him.

「玫瑰少年」叶永志的故事发生在十八年前,叶永志因个性较女性化,常被同学强行脱裤,导致他不敢在下课时间去上厕所。国中三年级时他在一堂音乐课下课前五分钟提早离开去厕所,后来却被发现倒在血泊中,送医不治身亡。

叶永志的死,在岛内引起了震动,激起了台湾社会对于性别平权的激烈讨论,使得原《两性平等教育法》在2002年修订为《性别平等教育法》。
