Wear purple to stand in solidarity and show support to those struggling every day through homophobia.
This event takes place everywhere. All you have to do is throw on a purple shirt, tie up a purple tie, wear some purple shoes.. Just put some on yourself, somewhere.
At this point the Vancouver vigil will be happening exactly a year after the first vigil, on October the 20th at 7pm. The vigil is to remember the youth who took their own lives due to homophobic bullying and to show people that IT GETS BETTER.
