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.” 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈❤️❤️❤️❤️ photo by Tania Marti ... See MoreSee Less

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 🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

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. 🌈🌈🌈Photo: Peter Knutson ... See MoreSee Less
