About Rainbow Railroad
Rainbow Railroad is a global non-profit organization that helps LGBTQI+ people facing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics. In a time when there are more displaced individuals 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.
In 2022, Rainbow Railroad responded to more than 10,000 requests for help – the highest number received in a year. The organization provided direct support to more than 4,450 LGBTQI+ people from 90 countries, including successfully relocating 287 individuals to countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Canada and the United States.
