Wear it Purple day was founded in 2010 in response to global stories of young LGBTIQ+ community members, their struggles and sadly for some the loss of life following bullying and harassment resulting from the lack of acceptance of their sexuality of gender identity. Wear it Purple day principles advocate for and empower LGBTIQ+ young people, create and promote the power of diversity and inclusion, raise awareness and challenge harmful social cultures ad champion rainbow-role models to help young people establish the confidence to be who they are.
Wear it Purple day continues to gain momentum and increased visible support within the Queensland public sector.
