Colour me purple

This coming Saturday is Wear It Purple Day, an annual LGBTIQA+ awareness day especially for young people, based in Australia.

Supporters wear purple to celebrate diversity among young people from the LGBTIQA+ community.

To celebrate this in Broken Hill there will be a Wear It Purple Day ‘Crafternoon’.

The event, which will take place at Sturt Park, will go from 10am to 4pm and will include painting, bead packing, flag making, a free BBQ, and with DJ Amanda Screetly on the decks.

Organiser Megan Williams highlighted the importance of the event.


“This event is about showing young LGBTIQ+ people that even though they may experience homophobia at school or in public, there is a large section of our community that supports them and sees them for who they really are.”

So, whether you’re a queer young person, friends, family or an ally — get down to Sturt Park this weekend and join in the festivities.
