Position with Wear it Purple?

General Board Member

Why did you join Wear it Purple?

After holding Wear It Purple Day’s within my own school and local community, and seeing the positive
impact it had on my students and the wider community, I really felt like this was an organisation and a
movement that I was passionate about. As a teacher, I feel I have different insights to offer the
organisation that will enable further growth and the ongoing creation of safe spaces for our queer
young people

Do you identify in the community or support as an ally?

I proudly identify as gay.
