Wear it Purple – Empower Together!

This Friday is Wear it Purple day – a day for everyone to show their respect for diversity and social equality, and for rainbow people to be proud of who they are!

CSU strives to be an inclusive University, as we want to be a place where all people feel valued, welcomed and respected for the talents that they bring to the higher education environment. That’s why we’re celebrating Wear it Purple day at CSU, with events happening across all campuses including giveaways, treats, information stalls in the Learning Commons and more! If you’d like to take part in the celebrations, and stand against discrimination in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ+) friends, colleagues and families, why not wear purple this Friday and show your support for LGBTIQ+ members of our community?

Want to find out more about LGBTIQ issues, communities and events? Then Check out some of the great resources available through the CSU Library website:
