Dubbo Police and headspace Dubbo will come together with the community on Friday at the Church Street Rotunda to celebrate ‘Wear It Purple Day’.

This day is about bringing awareness to the community about the challenges faced by lesbian, gay, and transgender people, and those questioning their sexual orientation.

Police will attend the event from 11am wearing specially approved purple police shirts to show support for the LGBTIQA community of Dubbo.

A free community barbecue will also be available at the event.   

"Wear It Purple Day is a great opportunity for the police within the Orana LAC to come together with the community to show support to those that face unfair challenges in their daily lives due to their sexual preferences,” Inspector Dan Skelly said.

“Police support equal opportunity for all persons in our community despite who they may choose as a partner and look forward to participating in the upcoming event on Friday."
