MSPS from across Holyrood’s political spectrum have joined together to give their backing to Scotland’s LGBTI youngsters. The representatives helped to mark the last Friday of LGBT History Month, also known as Purple Friday, by showing support for LGBT Youth Scotland’s campaign of the same name. Purple Friday aims to inspire people to be catalysts for positive change in their schools and workplaces. The campaign encourages people to use the colour as a way to express support for the LGBT community. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the Scottish Government would continue to champion LGBTI equality.
