By adopting a Hero you are helping build the National
Traveling Rainbow Memorial.
The Rainbow Memorial will Honor and forever remind the
world of All the Brave and Courage’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual
and Transgender people who broke free from the Cage (closet)
of Shame and Fear and lived life as themselves.
The Rainbow Memorial will help shine a light of Love on all our
Heroes and the community where the senseless murder has
happened and has been covered with a dark shadow of hate. It
will start the Healing processes and educate those who see it,
that we must fight hate and those who teach it together for a
safer and stronger more loving America.
The Rainbow Memorial will be a Beacon of Hope as it travels
the nation teaching love and fighting hate…Everyday!
