We were glad to be approached by fabulous Swedish coffee company Karma Coffee who wanted to support out work. They did so by creating a special coffee blend called 4ever Pride! They even donated parts of the proceeds to Rainbow Riots community centre in Uganda! Thank you! ❤️

Rainbow Riots

We are so pleased that the fabulous Stockholm gay bar Side Track Stockholm created special Rainbow Riots themed cocktails and donated part of the proceeds towards our work in Uganda!
Thank you so much! 💓

Sweden's biggest gay site QX wrote about it (in Swedish):

"I ett halvårs tid har gaybaren Side Track sålt specialdrinkar där del av intäkterna skänkts till den svenska hbt-organisationen Rainbow Riots. Sammanlagt har baren fått ihop 4610 kronor, vilket under pompa och ståt lämnades över i slitet av januari.

Donationen ska gå till det uppmärksammade hbt-center som Rainbow Riots nyligen etablerat i Uganda, berättar Rainbow Riots Petter Wallenberg.

– Landet är ökänt som ett av världens farligaste länder för hbt-personer, där det är olagligt att vara gay och lever i ständig rädsla. För att hjälpa dem har Rainbow Riots etablerat ett hbt-community center i Kampala.

– Vårt center i Uganda är en säker plats där hbt-personer kan vara sig själva. Precis som i en gaybar, vilket inte får finnas där. Det är därför med glädje som vi välkomnat detta fantastiska intiativ från Side Track. Denna insamling kommer hjälpa oss i vårt arbete med att hjälpa utsatta ugandiska hbt-personer. Det är väldigt uppskattat. Vi vill tacka Side Track och alla dess gäster som stöttat initiativet genom att köpa drinkarna!"

Rainbow Riots

Through the creation of the Rainbow Riots LGBT community centre in Uganda, we are so proud that we have managed to help some of the most vulnerable members of the Ugandan LGBT community. One of them, Musooke, was in a desperate situation, when we offered him a safe place to stay at the centre. Here is a message from Musooke to you all:

”I take this opportunity to thank all who donated to Rainbow Riots’ first LGBT community center in Uganda. It has really changed our lives, especially mine.

I lost my job and home because they realised that I was gay. I was about to commit suicide because of the difficulties, discrimination and torture I went through. Family and friends neglected me because of my sexuality, but it's only Rainbow Riots community centre that has given me a second chance of life.

I thank Rainbow Riots’s founder Petter Wallenberg and the Ugandan Rainbow Riots team for helping me to rise back to a normal life, because I had totally lost everything.

I also really want to thank everyone who donated towards the LGBT community center which was set up to help us who face bad circumstances because of being gay in Uganda. Please continue supporting us.”
