A big thank you to staff and students who have been able to find some purple to wear today.
Wear It Purple Day celebrates its 10th anniversary today, striving to foster supportive, safe empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people.
Four key focus areas are:
Awareness – We provide support and resources for Schools, Universities, Gender & Sexuality Alliances (GSA’s) and Youth Organisations to assist them in creating inclusive experiences for rainbow young people. We act as a source of resources to support the effective delivery of Wear It Purple Day in Schools, Universities, Workplaces and the broader community.
Opportunity - We provide meaningful opportunities for rainbow young people to develop their skills, expand their network and contribute to the inclusivity of their communities.
Environment – We provide supportive & safe spaces (digital and physical) and contribute to a world where young rainbow people feel proud of who they are.
Collaboration – We collaborate and unite with other organisations to further the inclusion of rainbow young people. Through partnerships, we support the effective delivery of Wear It Purple Day in Schools, Universities, Workplaces and the broader community.
Wear it Purple was established to show young people across the globe that there was hope, that there were people who did support and accept them, and that they have the right to be proud of who they are.
