Wear It Purple Day statement, 2021

Wear It Purple Day celebrates the diversity of Australian students and their right to dignity and respect at school. We celebrate its values of inclusion, and grass roots efforts to support community education and non-profits. We thought we’d take the opportunity to start a conversation on some of the challenges students with intersex variations may face at school.
