'Safe With Me' Campaign raises money for charity
Launching back in January 2022, the campaign includes the sale of 3 bespoke badges with the words ‘Safe With Me’, in the colours of the progress pride, non binary and transgender flags. The badges are designed by DOM & INK (the author of best selling books Free To Be Me & Queer Power, and online artist for Rupaul’s Drag Race UK and Little Mix).
“We'd love you to wear these badges all the time to create a safe space for queer people, whether you're out shopping, on public transport or at work. Show queer people they are 'Safe With Me'” said DOM & INK.
100% of the profits from these badges is being donated to Kaleidoscope International Trust. They're a UK based charity who work to uphold the humans rights of LGBTQ+ people across the whole Commonwealth. Their work includes supporting activists and civil society organisations working to repeal anti-LGBTQ+ laws in countries across the Commonwealth. This includes helping LGBTQ+ people leave countries they are persecuted in, because they still have anti-LGBTQ+ laws, originally introduced by the English Empire.
The campaign has received huge support online, and has even been promoted by Oscar winner Ariana DeBose, who won Best Supporting Actress for West Side Story this year.
The badges are available to buy online here (https://gayprideshop.co.uk/products/dom-ink-safe-with-me-3-pin-charity-set) or from Gay Pride Shop on the second floor of Afflecks, in Manchester City Centre.
