Northern Adelaide Senior College (NASC) students proudly donned vibrant purple attire, celebrating Wear It Purple Day with a heartfelt fundraiser and morning tea.
The event, held in the spirit of acceptance and inclusivity, aimed to create supportive and empowering environments for rainbow young people.
Wear It Purple holds a profound significance, founded in 2010 in response to the tragic stories of teenagers like 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, who took their own lives after facing bullying and harassment due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.
These heart-wrenching events stirred a movement that evolved into Wear It Purple, emphasising the importance of acceptance, love, and support for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation.
At NASC, students passionately embraced this cause, hosting a morning tea and fundraising event to raise awareness and funds for the Wear It Purple movement.
“Our students’ commitment to creating inclusive spaces is inspiring. Wear It Purple Day reminds us all that acceptance and respect are fundamental rights, and every individual deserves to be proud of who they are,” says Laura Sutherland, Student Voice case manager.
The event at NASC emphasised the enduring message: everyone has the right to be proud of their identity, reinforcing the school’s commitment to nurturing a compassionate and inclusive community.
