Rainbow Riots

Beautiful memory from last year when our Ugandan Rainbow Riots members performed our track ”Freedom”.

In Uganda it’s illegal and dangerous to be LGBT. To be yourself in that context is a very brave thing to do. So put your hands together for our brave and faboulous team members in Uganda daring to ”dance all night for freedom” as the lyrics to our song say.

If you want to support our work please buy or stream our song ”Freedom” by Rainbow Riots on iTunes, Spotify or other digital plattforms 🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈❤️

Rainbow Riots

We are proud to announce that out founder Petter Wallenberg is the winner of the Arco Nordica 2020 award from The International Lesbian and Gay Cultural Network!

The reason for the award is his work with opening the first LGBT community center in Uganda, where homosexuality is still a crime and for his work with founding the organisation Rainbow Riots.

According to the jury, the award is for proving ”that solidarity, compassion and generosity are the most powerful weapons against discrimination, intolerance, homophobia, silence and invisibility”.

We feel humbled and really wanna share this award with our wonderful team of collaborators and friends in Uganda where the struggle for human rights for all continues. This is an award to all of us to remember to not give up the fight for freedom, no matter where in the world we are. One day we will all be free. 🌈🌈🌈
