Rainbow Direction is a fan based initiative, dedicated to strengthening the LGBTQ+ community, educating people on LGBTQ+ issues and promoting support within the One Direction fandom. Rainbow Direction has released their Where We Are Tour video and it's a great documentary that shows Rainbow Direction in action through the voices and images of the participants! I am proud to have been a part of it (I make a cameo at 6:00)! I got choked up watching it! From Takemehomefromnarnia:
As One Direction is about to kick off their new, worldwide, On The Road Again tour - beginning February 7th in Sydney, Australia - Rainbow Direction also has some exciting news! The fan based initiative, dedicated to strengthening the LGBTQ+ community, educating people on LGBTQ+ issues and promoting support within the One Direction fandom, is proud to reveal the Rainbow Direction campaign video!
Experiencing the One Direction fandom as a sometimes dark and scary place for LGBTQ+ fans, Rainbow Direction decided to encourage peers to make their support for fans of all sexualities and gender identifications visible by bringing rainbows to the shows. We wanted everyone to feel welcome, safe, included and accepted.
During the Where We Are Tour, hundreds of people took part in the initiative. The video we release today is our way to share with the world what we have achieved together. Through the testimonies of 7 people, we invite you to discover what Rainbow Direction really means for its participants.
As Rainbow Direction is a worldwide campaign, we are proud to announce that - thanks to our many awesome volunteers - the video will be available on YouTube and Vimeo with subtitles in 18 different languages, with more coming.
The Rainbow Direction campaign will continue during the On The Road Again Tour this year. Over a thousand participants have already confirmed their commitment and more are joining us every day.
It would really mean a lot to us if you could help give this campaign more impact by reblogging and tweeting the video and by forwarding this press release to your local press outlets or to anyone you may know in the press. Thank you so much for all of your help, and we hope to see you on the OTRA Tour!
