Kaleidoscope to be launched Sept 13
The Kaleidoscope International Diversity Trust will be launched in London on September 13. The occasion will be marked by a reception at the House of Commons hosted by the Speaker, John Bercow MP, Kaleidoscope’s Honorary President.
The director of Kaleidoscope, Lance Price, paid tribute to all those who had helped bring the organisation from an idea to reality:
“So many people have given up their time and energy to make Kaleidoscope possible. They know who they are it’s now our responsibility to translate their hopes and efforts into something that can really make a difference. I am especially grateful to those women and men born and brought up in countries where just to be gay is to be in danger. Their experiences and their views have helped shape everything we plan to do at Kaleidoscope.
“Now we look forward to welcoming new supporters and getting down to work. The scale of the task appears daunting and it is. But wherever there has been progress, where unjust laws have been repealed, and where homophobic attitudes have been successfully challenged, the process was invariably started by a few brave individuals. They felt isolated, they faced abuse and attack, but they knew that they had right on their side.
“There are men and women with just the same courage, facing just the same threats and dangers, in every country where discrimination and persecution persist. They too have right on their side. With your help they can feel less isolated and be better equipped to take on the challenge they face.”
