Happy International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia! 🌈🌈🌈🌈Here are some lovely memories of when we headlined Stockholm Pride performing our international music collaborations between LGBTQ artists from Sweden, Uganda, Jamaica, Kenya, USA and Malawi! 🎉🎉🌈🌈With our boundary-crossing music we want people to see that we as LGBTQ people are everywhere, in every culture. But ultimately we are human beings. And like all humans - we need love. Because love is what? LOVE. And love always wins! ❤️❤️Watch this for a new big international Rainbow Riots coming soon! 🌈🌈🌈💓💓💓#RainbowRiots ... See MoreSee Less

Rainbow Riots are proud that our song “Freedom” has become a torch song to celebrate the strength and beauty of LGBTQ people all over the world! Here is a new photo from a graduation ceremony for LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers in Nairobi, Kenya, where “Freedom” was used in a drag performance to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility 2022. 😍😍All humans need to feel free and proud, even in countries that criminalise same sex relations or gender nonconformity. As our song says: “We’re beautiful, phenomenal, nobody gonna stop our love.” ❤️❤️❤️❤️🌈🌈🌈🌈#rainbowriots #freedom #lgbtq🌈 ... See MoreSee Less

Here is a memory from a historic event to say the least: India’s first legal Pride in 2019, as the country had just decriminalized same sex relations. 🌈🌈Rainbow Riots founder, Swedish artist Petter Wallenberg was on site in Mumbai, working since 2 years with the pioneers of the Indian LGBTQ movement. He was making music with India’s first openly LGBTQ singers, resulting in India’s first Pride anthem, which was premiered during the Pride festival. 🌈Considering that India is the most populous country in the world, the fact that all Indians are now free to love, could be the biggest victory for human rights in our time. It was amazing to be part of this rainbow revolution! 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 #rainbowriots #rainbowriotsindia #lgbtq #lgbt #lgbtpride #lgbtcommunity #loveislove #lgbtqindia ... See MoreSee Less

Looking back on the 2018 release of ”Pride and prejudice”, the musical piece created by Rainbow Riots founder, Swedish artist Petter Wallenberg with spoken word vocals by Ugandan poet Duncan Free Speech and a Ugandan LGBTQ gospel choir. It was recorded in Uganda, where it's illegal to be LGBTQ, as a call to action to stop discrimination and hatred. The single is available on iTunes, Spotify and all major digital plattforms and all proceeds go towards Rainbow Riots work to empower LGBTQ people globally.
