Colors Rainbow began as an LGBT program of Equality Myanmar (formerly the Human Rights Education Institute of Burma) in 2007, and has since grown into Myanmar’s leading LGBT rights organization. Colors Rainbow transitioned from Thailand to Myanmar in 2013 where we have expanded our work on enhancing public understanding and acceptance of the dignity and human rights of LGBT people. We work to end discrimination against LGBT people in Myanmar through awareness raising, education, legal reform and legal protection.
We do this through multifaceted programming that consists of trainings, discussions, networking meetings, community events, lobbying, advocacy and research projects, and the production of multimedia resources. Colors Rainbow produces a Myanmar-language community website and magazine covering LGBT issues in Myanmar and around the world.
