WEAR IT PURPLE

FRIDAY 30TH AUGUST

On Friday August 30, workplaces, schools and organisations wear purple to celebrate and support LGBTIQ young people.

And as you know, that's something VERY close to our hearts at Minus18

Get involved on Wear it Purple Day! Celebrate the spirit of queer young people, letting them know they’re valued, supported, and loved – that they’re allowed to be proud of who they are. By doing that, we can build their confidence and improve their mental health.

And the best bit? By supporting Minus18 on Wear it Purple Day, buying merch or fundraising, 100% of your efforts go directly to supporting queer youth.

GO PURPLE

WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED

EVENTS

Making friends and having safe community is the key way LGBTIQ youth are able to build confidence and improve their mental health.

Since 2011, Minus18 has supported over 65,000 young people at life-affirming events across Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, providing a space to be their true selves.

PEER SUPPORT

We provide peer support through articles, interviews and video content, so young people are able to access help online no matter what part of Australia they’re from – or the support they have from their school or families.

LGBTIQ resources are available free here

WORKSHOPS

Tackling bullying in schools is at the forefront of what we do, with workshops for students and young people, and professional development for teachers.

For workplaces, we deliver high impact training and LGBTIQ professional development to give you the tools you need to drive inclusion in your team.

CAMPAIGNS

We’ve got something special here, and we want to spread this message of love and acceptance far and wide.

With your help, we rally schools, businesses and people all over Australia to take action against the bullying and discrimination LGBTIQ people still face today.
