Rainbow Riots

We did it! After three months of rehearsals, this group of young Indian LGBT people did a dance flashmob on the streets of Bombay. The music was a new track that our founder Petter Wallenberg has made with Indian lesbian singer Pragya Pallavi called ”Love at first right” which is coming out soon.

At the first location the flashmob was stopped by the police, but we moved to another one - and succeeded! The energy was amazing! After 157 years of criminalization, same sex is now legal in India. It’s epic to be a part of this revolution! #loveatfirstright #rainbowriots #petterwallenberg #danceflashmob #lgbt #lgbtq #queer #queerpride #bombay #gayindia #queerindia @ Bandra-Worli Sea Link

We are starting Uganda’s first LGBT community centre - help us make this happen!

In Uganda it’s illegal to be gay. Queer people live in fear of being arrested or getting beaten up or killed.
Help us by donating today! No amount is too small. By creating this centre we can take a stand for every human’s right to equality and love.

Rainbow Riots

"It started five years ago in Sweden as a protest against homophobia. Now, Rainbow Riots is a global movement, encouraging LGBTIQ freedom through the transformative power of music. Along the way, songwriter and project leader Petter Wallenberg has stared down the barrel of guns but he’s making a real difference in Africa and India. He’s also getting drag queens to read stories to kids. What’s not to love?"

Rainbow Riots

Have you heard our big anthem ”Freedom"?

The single is taken from our album "Rainbow Riots" which is composed and produced by our founder, artist and musician Petter Wallenberg, featuring queer voices from some of the world’s most dangerous countries for LGBTQ people.

We filmed the video in Uganda just after Ugandan police stopped Pride Uganda and held us hostage at gun point. We will never give up the fight for equality for LGBTQ people around the world and just as the lyrics in our song say: ”We’re beatiful, phenomenal - nobody gonna stop our love.”

Buy Rainbow Riots -”Freedom” on iTunes or stream it on Spotify. All proceeds go towards towards our new community centre for LGBTQ people in Uganda. ❤️❤️🌈🌈❤️❤️ #hearttouching #queerstories #lgbtq #queermusic #freedom #uganda #lgbtuganda #petterwallenberg #rainbowriots #gay #transgender #dragqueen #africangay #africandance #lesbian #pride #pride🌈
