Purple Friday is a day when children and students wear something purple to school to show solidarity with LGBT+ people.
Every year, Purple Friday is organised on the second Friday of December. Purple Friday was inspired by Spirit Day in the US and Canada, to protest the bullying of young LGBT+ people. The colour was taken from the purple part of the rainbow flag used by the LGBT+ community, because that colour symbolises people’s spirit.
As a final assignment for this lesson, your class will work in small groups to organise a campaign at school that shows your acceptance of LGBT+ people. You can do this on Purple Friday, but it can also be any other day.
