Wear it Purple Day.

Happy Wear It Purple Day – Friday 26 August. 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.” The 2022 ‘Wear it Purple’ theme has a message of humanity, honesty, integrity and authenticity when discussing all diverse identities within the LGBTQIA+ community.

“We are your hospitality workers, your retail staff, your lawyers, your financial advisors, your teachers, your librarians and, most importantly, your youth. We are human. It reassures us that the world is changing for the better to embrace a variety of diverse individuals and, over time, remove dehumanising stigmas surrounding LGBTQIA+ communities.”
