The NASCAR Diversity program took it’s first major stand on an LGBT Issue this week.
In an unprecedented show of support, the six most prominent American major sports leagues — The National Basketball Association (NBA) / Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), Major League Baseball (MLB), Major League Soccer (MLS) and NASCAR’s diversity program — will all ‘go purple’ with GLAAD for Spirit Day on Friday, October 19, in a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.
The @NASCARDiversity Twitter Page Tweeted this today:
We love and support all of our fans. Happy #SpiritDay!
