Uplifted Virtual Raid Fundraiser
ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT
Rainbow Railroad | https://rainbowrailroad.org
Rainbow Railroad is global not-for-profit organization that helps LGTBQI+ people facing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics. In a time when there are more displaced people than ever before, LGBTQI+ people are uniquely vulnerable due to systemic, state-enabled homophobia and transphobia. These factors either displace them in their own country or prevent them from escaping harm.

“I’m doing the PRIDE fundraiser because we still have a long way to go, and even though society broadly accepts middle-class cis white gay couples there can be not rest until EVERYONE is equal. We’re well past the need for “awareness” now, equality or bust…”

Known for their contagious energy and emotional DJ streams, they will for sure leave you “trancing” onwards and upwards with their selection of feels and vibes!
WHY ARE YOU DOING THE PRIDE FUNDRAISER?
As a queer individual myself, I have always wanted to use my platform as a form of advocacy and means to give back to the LGBTQIA2+ community. After hearing about Rainbow Road and what they do I’m looking forward to performing for a good cause and on the last weekend of Pride!
