How we plan to donate more than $25,000 USD to help LGBTQ+ refugees find safe haven.
Rainbow Railroad is a charitable organization that helps resettle LGBTQ+ people who face persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics. You may have seen them featured on 60 Minutes or Canada’s Drag Race. With over 80 million people around the world displaced right now – the highest number since World War II – LGBTQ+ victims of persecution are especially vulnerable. That’s why we’ve decided to make supporting their cause part of our business. Everybody deserves to live their best life free of judgment and threat.
For over 10 years we’ve made a point to support LGBTQ+ organizations in the places we visit and back at home. But as we recover from the pandemic, and borders open up, we want to amplify this support in countries where our community risks persecution. Now, when you book a spot on all scheduled Out Adventures tours, we’ll make a $50 USD donation to Rainbow Railroad. We hope to donate $25,000 USD by the end of 2022, with more in the years to come. It’s Pride Month. And this felt like a fitting way to honour our community.
Join us on an Out Adventures Gay Tour and support Rainbow Railroad in the process.
