This year, the Wear It Purple Day movement celebrates 10 years. It was started following an increasing number of young LGBTIQ+ people reporting that they had experienced bullying and discrimination and as a consequence they suffered from increased levels of anxiety and depression.
Wear it Purple strives to foster supportive, safe, empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people.
If you want to show your support for our LGBTIQ+ community, please wear something purple or rainbow colours on Friday the 28th of August. You could also change your Google profile picture to something purple or rainbow. There will also be a lunchtime trivia for some fun.
Please find attached a picture of FHS showing its support for our beautiful rainbow community by wearing purple.
