“We come here to have peace and to live our lives as human beings.”

Zein is from Syria.

Threatened with death by his parents when they found out he was in a relationship with another man, he had to flee his country as soon as possible.

LGBTQIA+ people in Syria experience persecution on a daily basis, such as harassment, discrimination and physical and/or verbal abuse.

Zein wants to obtain a French degree and be able to work in France. He also wishes to see his mother again soon.

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!”.
