This is really heartbreaking. We are shocked by the news that LGBT activist Edwin Chiloba has been found dead inside a metal box at a roadside in Kenya, Africa.Same sex relations are illegal in Kenya, and punishable by up to 21 years in prison. To be openly LGBT can be very dangerous. Rainbow Riots therefore commend Edwin’s bravery to break the silence, and at the same time we mourn the fact that another life has been lost. We all have to join forces and keep fighting for a change for LGBT people all around the world. All humans should be free to be who they are and love who they love. ... See MoreSee Less

Merry Xmas and happy holidays everyone! And remember love is for everyone! 🎉💕🎄🌈🌈The photo is from when Rainbow Riots organised a secret Pride celebration in Uganda, after the police stopped Pride Uganda. Although they tried to stop lgbt people from gathering and celebrating their Pride as human beings, they couldn’t stop our secret party. A celebration can mean so much when it’s difficult or even illegal to be who we are and to love who we love. So remember to keep celebrating who you are and keep loving who you love! 💕🎉💕🎉#rainbowriots #lgbt #loveislove #lgbtq🌈 #queerpride #humanrights ... See MoreSee Less

Here is a photo from Rainbow Riots latest music workshop with young LGBT people in Uganda. We had such a great time in the studio! 😀In Uganda it’s illegal to be LGBT, so Rainbow Riots use creativity as a tool to strengthen the community in a safe way. That’s why music has always been an important part of our human rights activism. Music is a universal language that brings people together. It can also help create dialogue and discussion about LGBT issues on an international arena. 🤩🎊Through our international music releases, Rainbow Riots uniquely empower and support marginalised LGBT people, whilst helping them make their voices heard on a global scale. We believe that you can fight for your rights and have a great time whilst doing it. 💕💕With support from Svenska institutet & Kulturrådet ... See MoreSee Less

This is a wonderful scene from Rainbow Riots latest music video ”We Don’t Care”, filmed this year in Uganda. 🎉🎉🎉In Uganda it’s illegal to be LGBT. Since nearly 8 years back, our Ugandan chapter, Rainbow Riots Uganda works tirelessly to empower the country’s LGBT community. ✨✨✨We often use creative working methods to create inclusivity within the community and to communicate with the outside world. Art, music and dance can be very powerful tools to get silenced LGBT voices out there and advocate for a change. Rainbow Riots strive for a world where no human being is punished simply for who they are or who they love! 💗💗💗Created with support from Svenska institutet & Kulturrådet#rainbowriots ...
