“When I was made visible, I had to leave everything, I was threatened with death.”

Huguette is 23 years old and comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Made visible by her girlfriend’s father, Huguette is threatened with death. Arrested and locked up for three days in a room with no light, she has to leave her country in a hurry, leaving everything behind.

She travels to Turkey and then Greece before arriving in France in 2020, where she seeks asylum.

Huguette wants to train to become a firefighter.

Huguette is proud of who she is.

Rainbow Welcome! visual universe

Rainbow Welcome! visual identity has been developed by Alison Roger France, in collaboration with PLS and all the partners. 

She studied the complexity of sexuality, sexual orientations, genders, gender expressions, identities, sexual characteristics, fluidity between the various spectrums, etc. She also adopted a reflective creation process including refugees’ journey in life and on earth to finally come with those organic forms whose nasting, movements and textures aim at illustrating the multiplicity and complexity of each and all individuals. Of course, the colours of the LGBTIQ+ flag have been used. The whole is wanted to be dynamic, intriguing and … positive. Our message is the one of reception and inclusion, as stated in our motto “Rainbow refugees, WELCOME!”.
