Celebrities send messages of support to LGBTI students after US election

Singer Sia has sent a message of support to LGBTI students.

Since the 2016 US election reports of violence, bullying and harassment against LGBTI students have increased.

As a result of increasing discrimination US based organisation GLSEN decided to launch the 100 Days of Kindness campaign to get behind LGBTI students.

Hollywood celebrities are some of the big names getting behind the campaign to support LGBTI students.

The national campaign invites people to post messages of support to LGBTI students on social media.

Messages are share using the hashtag #KindnessInAction and each message shared will form a brick on a virtual wall of kindness.

Celebrities who have joined in on the action include Mark Ruffalo, Charlie Carver, SIA, Kate Walsh and Sarah Silverman.

People can add their messages of support by posting to on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter account using #KindnessInAction in your post and it will then be added to the virtual wall.

GLSEN recommends including an image of yourself or record a short video, along with your social media message.
