Cher has always been a champion for the LGBTQ community. This year, she’s among the lineup of celebrities who’ll be showing their support for GLAAD’s Spirit Day.

Spirit Day, the organization’s annual anti-bullying campaign, will take place on October 15. It involves companies, celebrities and more “going purple” on social media to show their unified support for LGBTQ youth.

“At a time when LGBTQ youth may be isolating in homes that are not affirming or do not have access to their usual support systems, this year’s Spirit Day is a chance for LGBTQ people and allies to send messages of acceptance and support to LGBTQ youth when they need it most,” says GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement to Billboard.

Other celebrities and artists participating this year include Daughtry, Ava Max, country group The Chicks, actress Halle Berry, actor Sterling K. Brown, JoJo and MAX.
