Wear It Purple Day - Pride Week

Wear purple to celebrate diversity and young people from the LGBTIQA+ community.

Wear it Purple Day is 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. 

This year the theme for Wear It Purple Day 2022 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. The 2022 theme encapsulates the message of humanity, honesty, integrity and authenticity when discussing all diverse identities within the LGBTIQA+ community. 

On Friday 26 August wear your favourite purple outfit on RMIT campuses, take a snap and tag #RMITpride for your chance to be featured on RMIT's social media!  

More information about Wear It Purple Day can be found on their website.
