This Cheerios ad spotlights André and Jonathan, a couple, and their daughter Raphaëlle. “We couldn’t keep all this luck and love to ourselves, we had to share it”.

What a beautiful family.

Sharing stories to shift attitudes is central to our mission. We’re doing it in Uganda with our partners, kickstarting an unprecedented push to combat anti-gay hate - by winning the hearts of Ugandans who fear them.
And the next stop? The rest of the world. If we can raise enough funds to pull it off, together we can talk directly to 1 million people in Uganda and worldwide via print, radio and online channels. 
Here are just 3 steps of the plan we can take global with your support, spread the word and donate to make this a reality:

During Sochi 2014, thousands of All Out members called on the IOC to change its rules so future host cities would never again be able to discriminate against any group - including LGBT people. 
Today, they did it. They will add a clause reflecting Principle 6 of the Olympic Charter that says NO to discrimination. Now, it’s up to us to make sure this change is powerfully enforced. HUGE victory!

When Maria, a trans student in Brazil, was fined by her school for wearing a skirt, her classmates took matters into their own hands. They picked a day where EVERYONE wore skirts in protest. 
After the demonstration, the school’s discussing changes to the dress code. So inspiring, right?

“They tried everything to make me stop being gay.” 

This is Xiao Zhen’s powerful story of what too many gay people endure in China, at the hands of doctors who attempt to ‘cure’ them of who they are and who they love. He survived a gay ‘cure’ clinic and now he wants everyone in the world to know that being gay is normal.

A lesbian kiss on Doctor Who was cut from BBC broadcasts across Asia, apparently to comply with “public morals and social values” regulations. The kiss was between Vastra, the lizard woman to the left and her wife, Jenny. Boo, BBC!

This man survived a gay ‘cure’ clinic in China, and now he wants everyone to know that being gay is OK.
From All Out member Xiao Zhen (TW for abuse):
"I was electro-shocked at a gay ‘cure’ center in China. Doctors hypnotized me and said they would ‘shock the gay’ out of me.

In families like mine, being gay is still seen as something that can be cured, and scam clinics prey on that fear. Now, I want my friends, my family and everyone in China to understand that being gay is normal.

If we get the World Health Organization (WHO) to join in and speak out against gay ‘cures’, it could create a perfect storm. It could help convince officials to finally ban these dangerous gay ‘cures.’


Will you sign my petition asking WHO Director Dr. Margaret Chan to speak up now and condemn gay ‘cures’ in China?” - Xiao Zhen

Uganda’s Constitutional Court has scrapped the anti-gay law that said people could go to jail for life just for who they love. 

There’s so much more work to be done, this is just the start. Just today, Uganda’s Uganda’s Attorney General appealed the ruling. But for now, brave Ugandans who fought this law could use a big “congrats”! Will you share this news and sign a card sending love to Ugandan groups?
