Rainbow Railroad is a non-profit charity whose mission is to help LGBTQ persons escape persecution from countries where they are open targets of violence.
The cost to bring a person out of their current environment is approximately $10,000 CAD. Our goal is to raise, with your help, enough funds to bring at least one person to safety.

Around the world, over 70 countries have anti-homosexuality laws, and many more have other laws that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In too many countries around the world, LGBTQI people are routinely arrested, denied basic human rights, and are being brutally attacked, tortured or even murdered.
There are a small amount of brave human rights defenders and civil society groups trying to fight for LGBTQI rights in these countries, providing a lifeline for support. However, for those not able to get access to these organizations, life in their home country is unbearable.
Rainbow Railroad is a registered charitable organization that provides support to LGBTQI individuals seeking a safe haven from state-sponsored or enabled violence. This includes airfare and financial support for travel related costs, including costs immediately before and after travel. Beyond direct financial assistance, Rainbow Railroad provides information and resources on how to make an asylum claim directly in safer countries or through the UnitedNationsHighCommission forRefugees (UNHCR) resettlement process.
