High school students created Wear it Purple Day to address homophobic bullying and harassment and it is now a national day to support young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ).
The City of Sydney will light up Sydney Town Hall in purple and hold a free barbecue, with live entertainment from the NSW Police band, information stalls and giveaways. NSW Police, Wear It Purple, Twenty10, The Gender Centre, Inner City Legal Centre, Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and ACON join forces on Friday 26 August 12-5pm at 1 Bedford Street Newtown.
