Wear it Purple Day is an international movement of expression, celebration and support.  This year's theme is ‘Still me, still human’. The message being that people tend to focus on labels, the news story, the target or data and forget what we truly are – human.

Why purple?

The Wear it Purple organisation chose to use purple as it's not a primary colour. This means it's a colour that takes on many other colours to mix together to become what it is, purple. This idea embodies what Wear It Purple stands for – being made from a diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community and coming together to make something amazing.

Get involved

Join the TAFE Queensland - South West team and show your support by wearing purple on Friday 26 August.  

Look out for our team members at our Springfield, Ipswich, Toowoomba and Inala campuses with the official Wear It Purple Instagram cut out frames and together we will shine a spotlight on the movement via social media.
