Amplifund – a philanthropic initiative led by global LGBTQ media organisation, Gay Times - has launched a campaign supporting LGBTQ activism in media to help increase the acceptance of LGBT communities around the world. Posters were like this one were rolled out across London to reflect the censorship of LGBTQ life around the world, including the UK. They use a pixellated rainbow flag to hide scenes showing authentically everyday queerness. Two media and activist organisations, based in Iraq and Jamaica, are the first global partners working with Amplifund. They’ll get support to help them reach queer people who face potential danger due to anti-LGBTQ laws and social norms. What do you think of the campaign? Great way to get people's attention focused by using a technique - pixellation - so widely associated with protection of identity?
