Wear it Purple calls on all of us to show we respect each other just as we are, and to stand up against bullying based on sexuality and gender diversity. It's a movement started by young peoplefor young people to raise awareness of challenges facing sexuality- and gender-diverse young people, creating environments in which they feel safe and supported.

Re: Wear it Purple Day Thread One: Purple pics

Too lazy to take pictures and try and upload them. But my pj pants are purple! I don't own much purple clothing, but would have worn my sparkly purple jumper if I could find it. Boo!

Awesome pics everyone!

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: Wear it Purple Day Thread One: Purple pics

@Bee @Myvo Glasses buddies! Mine aren't purple but I spent a good portion of the afternoon working on an awesome (I tried really hard not to use the word kick-ass there) picture and it's finally done! 


Should be better quality now so you can read the writing. A little story to follow the picture; The first line in red down the bottom, about seeing colours, was just something random. So was the one in red down the righthand side. Most of the red was random but then I thought rainbow colours with fun messages on the whole page! Then the messages started to be about gender (green) and sexuality (also green and blue) and then I hit purple and wrote Wear It Purple, the the date. And then I drew my avatar (Love is never wrong), added the year, and then the flags. And then the message (Be proud of who you are). It just shows that you can start something with something cool in mind and then turn it into something better. And even if it's not what you started with, that doesn't make it any less awesome.
