Wear it Purple Day
1 August 2019
Friday 30 August is Wear it Purple Day – a chance to celebrate and support students who identify as LGBTIQA+ or are questioning their sexuality or gender identity.
Wear it Purple Day started in 2010 in direct response to stories of students suffering. This year’s theme is Stand Up. Stand Out. It’s a great opportunity to Stand Up to the language of hate that has dominated the media recently and to Stand Out by fostering a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.
To make it easy for schools to show their support, Wear it Purple has developed free school packs including posters and wristbands. For more information, ideas and to register an event see Wear it Purple Day.
