Purple Friday 2022: join us and wear purple

6 December 2022

December 9 is Purple Friday: the day when you can show solidarity with the LGBTQIAP+ community by wearing purple. By doing so, you show that we can all be ourselves, no matter who we are or fall in love with. 

In Leiden and The Hague, pride flags are flown on University buildings on Purple Friday. By colouring the university purple, we show that diversity is the norm and that no one should be excluded. If you would like to show your support on Friday, wear purple clothes and/or accessories that day. If you will be working or studying at home, you can also download the Purple Friday digital package, with special purple PowerPoint templates and backgrounds for video calls.
