An excerpt from the press release:

We are at a transformative stage in the struggle towards the true equality of LGBTQ people. Hatred, discrimination, persecution, and legal barriers are still prevalent—and in many places violence and murder are a daily reality for millions. Change is underway and it is often artists that occupy this cutting edge. [. . .]

The struggle continues and energy must be given to those regions and nations where marginalized self-identification is criminalized and repression still rules. LGBTQ rights are human rights and the inequality will not go away unless we continue to stand up. Over the Rainbow pays tribute to all the brave artists who defend the human rights of all people.
