This is the time of year when I wish my favorite fantasy would come to life. What if, for one day only, everyone on Earth who'd ever slept with a same-sex partner, or wished they had, turned purple? Just for a day, we'd get to see what is really going on for most of the world out there.
If you eat a purple cupcake, there's a chance you can save a life. Since 2008, when Purple Day was created by eight-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada, on March 26th, people the world over wear lavender in support of those battling the realities and consequences of epilepsy.
