Pledging to “go purple” on Spirit Day, October is a way for everyone — forward-thinking companies, global leaders, respected celebrities, neighbors, parents, classmates, and friends — to visibly show solidarity with LGBTQ youth and to take part in the largest, most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world.

In the meantime, Watch Adam perform a medley of 4 Non Blondes’ “What’s Up?” and “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi onstage at the Justin Tranter and GLAAD Present ‘Believer’ Spirit Day Concert.
Starting November 1, Adam will be back out on the road as front man for Queen as the band heads across Europe, followed by New Zealand and Australia. Check out their schedule HERE.
