You may already be aware of Rainbow Riots: a politically and religiously independent, non-profit organization advocating for human rights for LGBTQ people globally. What you may not be aware of, however, is the great change this organization is pushing for in Uganda.
In Uganda, it is illegal to be gay. People have to hide that part of themselves for fear of being physically attacked, verbally abused, and even killed. Rainbow Riots wants to open up an East African LGBT center, where members of the community can feel safe to express the part of themselves that they’re always having to hide.
Peter Wallenberg, the founder of Rainbow Riots, says:
”We want to open Uganda’s first LGBT community centre, which will be a safe pace to welcome the Ugandan LGBT community. With creative expression at the core we will keep fighting against hatred whilst giving Ugandan LGBT people an important voice in the world. To make this happen, we need your help. Be a part of this historic project by donating today.”
