Purple Friday is a day when everyone can show solidarity with the LGBTIQ+ community, simply by wearing a purple garment. This initiative came over from the United States and Canada, where Spirit Day took place for the first time. It is intended as a means to combat bullying of LGBTIQ+ teens and young adults. THUAS endorses this initiative and calls on all its students and staff members who stand together with the queer community to wear purple on 10 December.On Purple Friday, The Lighthouse and the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force are organising an (online) programme with the theme: ‘Diversity in the Rainbow Community’. This programme is for everyone studying or working at The Hague University of Applied Sciences who has a lot or even little knowledge of the queer community.
