Share your 'Wear It Purple' Story!

Wear it Purple Day is fast approaching and we want to hear from you!

The Inclusive Communities Network is putting together a video that aims to show support and celebrate the diversity of the young LGBTIQ+ people in Canterbury Bankstown.

We are looking for young LGBTIQ+ people, allies and service providers to shoot a simple 30 second video telling us why Wear it Purple Day is important to you.

You are welcome to film yourself, have someone else film you, or utilise one of our videographers to film you. Head to weblink to submit your videos or seek further information.

If you wish to attain filming support from our videographer, please send me an email at [email protected]
