Creating a healthier, better connected Gippsland.

Wear it Purple Day supports rainbow young people

Gippsland PHN is proud to be celebrating Wear It Purple Day on Friday 26 August 2022, a day that strives to foster supportive, safe, empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people.

Every year thousands of schools, community organisations, universities and workplaces hold events across Australia for Wear It Purple Day.

As a day of significance for many Australians, it focuses on our LGBTQIA+ youth and the issues they face, while showing them they have the right to be proud of who they are and who they are becoming.

Wear it Purple Day is now an international movement of expression, celebration and support. By wearing purple on the last Friday of August, you will demonstrate to hundreds of thousands of rainbow young people across Australia that you see them, you support them, and you respect them.

Why don’t you share messages of support to LGBTQIA+ young people online in honour of Wear it Purple Day and help us raise awareness and educate everyone in our community?
