Why did you join Wear it Purple?

I saw the passion of those involved in Wear it Purple, and the empowering message is amazing. As a young (ish) person at the time who was working through my identity as a Christian and as gay, it was amazing to have support and an outlet for pride!

I have been with my wife* Jayde for 7 years now, one year more than I’ve been involved with Wear it Purple.

*we have had a ceremony, though of course are still waiting for Australia to legalise same sex marriage.
