If you haven’t heard of them, Rainbow Railroad, is an outstanding organization whose mission is to help persecuted LGBTQ individuals from places where they face state-enabled harassment and violence as they seek a safe haven. Since 2006, Rainbow Railroad has helped more than 600 individuals escape to safety and freedom— averaging 200 people helped in each of the last two years. We encourage you to check them out.
Backstory: We were honored to be included in an exhibit at the Zandvoorts Museum entitled “Pride and Prejudice” – a part of the annual Pride at the Beach celebration in Zandvoort, The Netherlands. You can read our earlier blog post will many more details here.
We created designs specifically for the exhibit and made them available to purchase until the exhibit ended (25 August 2019). We donated €5 from the sale of each design. We also created a special Rainbow Edition shirt and donated the full purchase price (€40) from each of those shirts sold.
