Last year we made history – but more than that, we showed that love, kindness and compassion are more powerful than any message of hate.
This is the simple message of wear it purple day: everyone has the right to be proud of who they are – and now more than ever, this is a message that our young people need to hear.
That’s why this August 31, we won’t just be saying it, we’ll be painting it.
The Amnesty International WA LGBTQI Action Group is celebrating Wear it Purple Day with Paint it Purple. This event is an opportunity to bring together the LGBTQI and activist communities.
We’ll be coming together to share food, stories and hope. You’ll have the opportunity to take action against conversion therapy, and Bryan Stewart of the Freedom Centre will also join us to discuss the mental health issues that the LGBTQI Community faces.
If you’re interested in getting involved, or just want to show your support – put on your best purple gear, and join us for this social night of celebration and empowerment.
