Thursday’s Purple Shirt Day was the seminal peak of events, marked by the simple act of boys wearing purple shirts to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. With the prompt of “come wearing purple”, creative sparks flared and some boys came to school in legendary outfits that will be remembered for Spirit Days to come.
