Wear it Purple Day 2020

Friday is Wear it Purple day, a day designed to foster supportive, safe, empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people! Wear it Purple day is an important time for us all to show young people in our local communities, and across the globe, that there is hope, there are people who support and accept them, and they should be proud of who they are. The key principles of Wear it Purple day include:

  • Advocating for and empowering Rainbow young people
  • Celebrating and promoting the value of diversity and inclusion in all community settings
  • Raising awareness about sexuality, sex and gender identity and challenge harmful social cultures
  • Championing Rainbow role-models to help young people establish the confidence to be who they are.

The Charles Sturt University Library would like to celebrate Wear it Purple day by sharing with you some of our online resources that celebrate Rainbow youth, and can help us all learn how to make a difference:

So why not join in on Wear it Purple day this year, and be part of a movement that has the potential to save thousands of lives?
