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!
