Celebrate Wear it Purple at the Library on Friday 25 August!

Join our annual Wear it Purple Day program at the Library in celebration of LGBTQIA+ young people.

Wear it Purple is an annual date of significance that focuses on supporting safe, empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people. We’ll be hosting a range of activities for staff and students to get involved!

This years’ theme, Write Your Story was generated by the Wear it Purple Youth Action Council to highlight the importance of LGBTQIA+ young people sharing their experiences in their own voices.

Come and join our celebrations:

Purple carpet
Our fabulous purple VIP carpet (pictured above) will return this year at the entrance of Fisher Library.

Purple throughout the Library
Keep an eye out for purple decorations at our service points, and staff in Wear it Purple t-shirts and purple outfits.

Treasure Hunt
Discover LGBTQIA+ Library collections by completing a treasure hunt at Fisher Library. Pick up your clues at the info desk, find the answers and return for a prize. We’ll have 100 available, so get in early!
