The Group's Purpose

Our group, Rainbow New Beginnings, is dedicated to rescuing a gay male refugee from the Middle East, or elsewhere, who is facing discrimination, persecution, torture or even death. Our objective is to bring him to the safety of Canada using the government's private sponsorship program and through the generous donation of financial and social support by our network of friends and contacts.

How to Help

1. You can help by giving a donation on this site. A tax receipt will be issued to all Canadian residents.

2. We invite you to attend a film fundraiser at the Bytowne Cinema on November 22, 2018 at 6:45 pm. The film showing that evening is called “Mr. Gay Syria”, a feature documentary about two gay Syrian refugees who try to rebuild their lives after having been forced to leave their country.

About the Organizers

We are a group of 9 private citizens from various walks of life who give their time and efforts so that LGBT people may be given a new beginning in Ottawa free of reprisals and persecution just because they are of a minority sexual orientation.
