Purple Friday Resources for schools

February is LGBT History Month and on the last Friday of the month we celebrate Purple Friday - a day to stand up against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and show our support for LGBTI young people.

This year we're asking schools across Scotland to get involved on the 24th February 2017. There are lots of different ways you can take part, from wearing purple to flying the rainbow flag, so we've developed a handy information pack to get you started. This year you can be a #PurpleHero and help us save and change LGBTI young people's lives.

You can find out from the links below why your school should get involved as well as some great tips and ideas on what you could do on the day. 

Please note Purple Ribbons are now out of stock.

Click the links below for more information or download the whole pack for printing.
