It's Wear it Purple Day!

Think big, think purple!

It's Wear it Purple Day!

We’re being urged to dress in shades of lavender, indigo or violet for today’s “Wear it Purple” Day; with locals promoting tolerance and diversity.


The day aims to highlight the struggles faced by our young lesbian, gay and transgender people; as well as those unsure of their sexual orientation.


The day comes as Sunraysia prepares to vote on the issue of same-sex marriage.



Headspace's Alison Logan says the message to the local rainbow community -- is there is always a safe place to go to be themselves.


Youths who are struggling in the community and need some guidance are urged to contact Mildura's Headspace Office for free advice!
