Join Sting and a long list of artists on Monday, September 15 at the Gershwin Theater, in New York for “Uprising of Love,” which supports the safety and dignity of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex people worldwide.
“At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blind to appalling violations of human rights elsewhere. Today in Russia, Uganda, Nigeria, and elsewhere, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, abuse, and violence. In some countries, recent laws have deemed homosexuality punishable by death and the situation appears to be getting worse, not better.” – UprisingOfLove.org
The organization’s mission as stated on their website is: To raise awareness among the international community of violence, discrimination, and atrocities committed against LGBTI people, to support LGBTI people and communities in areas where safety and dignity is compromised through funds and solidarity, and to support and collaborate with LGBTI and human rights organizations concerned with these issues.
