Wear it Purple is hosting a free event at the Pine Street Creative Arts Centre in Chippendale on Saturday, May 28 from 11am to 3pm to celebrate and support GLBTI youth.

The event will be held as part of The IDAHO Exhibition: Fragility, and will consist of music, artworks and workshops.

“It’s for people to share stories in a whole lot of different ways, sharing their experiences of coming out and homophobia in a whole lot of different mediums,” campaign coordinator Scott Williams said.

“A lot of young people don’t have many opportunities to voice their feelings. An event like this can help to give them a sense of identity and community.”

Wear it Purple is also seeking young performers (aged 25 or under) to perform on the day alongside GLBTI Brazilian drumming group Flamba Samba and an acoustic duet by James and Pappy.

“We’re seeking anyone from ventriloquists to musicians — anything really,” Williams said.

Interested performers can contact scott@wearitpurple.org for more information.
