WEAR IT PURPLE DAY APPROACHES

In the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, separation from community support structures has been one of the greatest struggles that Rainbow people have faced. It’s hard to watch the world burning, and it’s harder when you feel you’re watching it alone. However, in times like these, it’s important to remember that while we may be distant, we’re never alone. But, not in a creepy way. Wear It Purple has been serving and supporting Rainbow young people since 2010, and a lot has happened in the past 10 years. We’re finally allowed to get married, we see representations of ourselves in mainstream television, and Delta Goodrem even released three more studio albums. In light of ‘recent events,’ Star Observer sat down with Wear It Purple to talk about youth, ‘the gays’, and Wear It Purple’s annual Wear It Purple Day on August 28 to raise awareness for safe spaces and suicide prevention among Rainbow young people. Youth Action Council Executive of Wear It Purple, Izzy Calero, told Star Observer that while celebrating the anniversary for Wear It Purple during a global pandemic is “heartbreaking,” there is still plenty to look forward to in the coming month.
