Purple Friday

On the last Friday of February, we celebrate Purple Friday: our annual fundraising day.

It plays an integral part in our ability to keep our youth work services running, now more so than ever. It’s all about taking action; standing up against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and helping us make Scotland the best place for LGBTI young people to grow up.

While we can’t get together to celebrate in person this year due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, we can come together virtually.

So, this Purple Friday we invite you to take part in the Pass The Torch Relay!

  1. Set yourself a challenge
  2. Fundraise or donate
  3. 'Pass the torch' and nominate someone else to take part

Want to know more? Download our Participation Guide – you’ll find all the info on how to get involved in there!

Together we can beat the lockdown blues, lift our spirits and make a difference to the lives of LGBTI young people in Scotland.

What better way to shout about Purple Friday than with a lovely accessory! Check out our exciting new merch here:
