WHAT:  Fun, webinar and panel-free event includes interactive, LGBTIQ+ educational trivia and coming together in a virtual human photo collage** (Remember the Human Rainbow? Feels like forever ago, let's replicate that sense of togetherness and support!)

TO WEAR/ NOT TO WEAR: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT - DON'T WEAR A PURPLE SHIRT FOR THIS EVENT! Instead, use this downloadable Wear It Purple Day Zoom background.  Zoom advises not wearing clothing that’s the same colour as the virtual background, it will look funny!

You can still pop on some purple accessories or make-up!


This year marks the tenth anniversary of not-for-profit organisation Wear It Purple, founded in 2010 by two young Australians, in response to global stories of LGBTIQ+ teenagers taking their own lives due to bullying and harassment.

Wear It Purple has grown into a world-wide celebration of diversity and pride!  Now more than ever it's time to tackle stigma and discrimination, while reinforcing respect for each other.
