WEAR IT PURPLE EMERGENCY SERVICES ACTIVITIES

Hi all,

Quick post in the off season,

NSW Police have invited SLSNSW to participate in the Emergency Services, Wear it Purple day to celebrate LGBT inclusion amongst all the emergency services and raise awareness of youth LGBT suicide and bullying.

There is a photoshoot planned for next Tuesday 9am in Centennial Park, uniforms required (no need to bring swimmers, far too cold).

Then following that on Wear it Purple Day Friday 31 August, NSW Police Sydney Metro Region and City of Sydney council will be hosting an event in Hyde Park, either in lifesaving uniform or wearing purple.  Details to follow on the time for this.  Again this will be to promote prevention of homophobic and transphobic bullying and violence and the impact on young people.

Hope to see you there.  See the 2014 photoshoot below.
