From GLAAD.org website:
Performer Sophie B. Hawkins, who is currently starring in a Los Angeles stage production of Room 105: The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin, will be wearing purple during her performance as Joplin this Friday in support of Spirit Day. The play has received rave reviews
Regarding her stance against bullying and how it relates to the role she’s currently playing, Hawkins said, “The bully is trying to kill that part in themselves which the gay child represents: love, vulnerability, and a passion for creativity. The gay child must survive and learn to love themselves, and through this journey, like what Janis Joplin was able to with her music, the bully will be inspired to do the same. Then the onslaught of hatred will become an onslaught of love.”
