Rainbow Riots

We have received a wonderful tribute from Brazil!

Brazil has one of the world’s highest rates of murders of LGBTQ people. Inspired by Rainbow Riots, this group of black Brazilian LGBTQ artists and dancers called Afrobapho gathered to fight homophobia with creativity. The group recorded their own video to our song ”Freedom” in Brazil and added their own spoken word intro in Portuguese.

They sent us a message:

”This video was inspired by your work. We hope you enjoy this homage from our LGBTQ group in Brazil.”

The song ”Freedom” is written and produced by our founding director Petter Wallenberg, who also directed the original music video with the LGBTQ community in Uganda.

Check out this wonderful Brazilian tribute!

"We are different, but love is love and it is no different."

This is our new music video "Unmask", filmed in Uganda, where it's illegal to be gay. It's directed by our founder Petter Wallenberg who also wrote and produced the song, featuring spoken word poetry by Ugandan poet Duncan Free Speech.

This is the last single release from our album ”Rainbow Riots”, written and produced by Petter Wallenberg, featuring queer voices from some of the world’s most dangerous places for LGBT people. It is out on iTunes, Spotify and all major digital platforms.

All proceeds go towards the community centre Rainbow Riots are launching in Kampala, Uganda.

Swedish LGBT magazine QX wrote about India's first legal Pride and all the activities that Rainbow Riots collaborated on, including a dance flashmob with young Indian LGBT people and a concert with India's first LGBT choir.
