Bullying or marginalising youths and adults who identify as LGBTIQ+ should not be tolerated!

This week I shared the heartbreaking article about a young boy, age 9 ending his life after suffering bullying and homophobic abuse from classmates, it was essential to show our support on ‘wear it purple’ day.

Wear it Purple Day is about showing rainbow (sexuality and gender diverse) young people that they are supported, celebrated and respected exactly as they are. It’s about raising awareness in your school, workplace, uni, or general community that rainbow young people face challenges that they shouldn’t, and it won’t be tolerated.

Wear it Purple has a simple message: you have the right to be proud of who you are. Sexuality or gender identity does not change this.

Please donate to this important cause:

Please share with like-minded colleagues who can benefit from my insights and follow me on LinkedIn. I am passionate about raising awareness of the effects of bullying and helping people to break the silence.

If you would like to book me for a training course or speaking event, please get in touch.
