Today is Wear it Purple Day which strives to foster supportive, safe, empowering, and inclusive environments for LGTBQIA+ youth.
It highlights the issues they face whilst showing them that they have the right to be proud of who they are and who they are becoming.
This year’s theme is ‘Still me, still human’. The message being that people tend to focus on labels, the news story, the target or data and forget what we truly are – human.
We encourage everyone to wear purple today to show the LGBTQIA+ youth part of our community that you see them, you support them, and you respect them.
