For One Direction’s Where We Are tour we are launching a project to raise visibility and build a community of support for One Direction’s LGBTQ+ fans across the world:
RAINBOW DIRECTION !!!
We want all fans to feel safe, welcome, and supported. The homophobia in the One Direction fandom often makes LGBTQ+ fans feel unwelcome and invisible in the world. At Takemehomefromnarnia we want to change that. We want to speak out, stand up proudly and make our selves known. Because we aren’t just one in a million! We want to show who we are and just how many of us there are, all around the globe.
First of all, we want to make ourselves visible and recognizable at every single One Direction concert during the Where We Are tour, with a slogan/logo/banner.
And you get to have your say! You can send your ideas for slogans and your designs for logos and banners to: email@example.com by March 7th. Instructions here, and remember: STRICTLY NO SHIPPING, we focus on supporting LGBTQ+ fans.
Next, we’ll take a week to put all your suggestions into a nice survey and as of March 14th you will be able to vote for the slogan and design of your choice. The winners will be announced another two weeks later and get: eternal fame!
After that, it’s simple – we will make all the designs available in different formats and you should be able to:
1.Print/make your own signs with the slogan and whatever other decorations (glitter and rainbows!!!) you like.
2.Take your signs to the WWA concert of your choice. Hold them up proudly! Make yourself heard!
3.Take a picture/video of yourself with your sign at the venue or better yet, if possible, take a picture in front of a landmark from that city and SEND IT TO US! Creativity caught on video is welcome too!
If you aren’t going to a concert, you can absolutely still participate! In that case you can:
4.Take step 1. just as described above, and take a picture of you and your sign, if possible including a landmark from your city/town, and SEND IT TO US!
5.Pre-tour, as of now in fact, you can sign up to join and represent “Rainbow Direction” at any venue/city: LGBTQ+ fans AND supporters, all welcome! We will be trying to recruit people at each venue and from all over the world. You don’t have to be front row, you don’t even have to have tickets (though if you do: jooooooooiiiinnnnnn!!! noooooooowwww!!! (if you like))
6.We’ll make a page where we’ll keep track of representatives and which concerts/cities your submissions are from. We will post all the pictures and videos. You will also be able to submit LGBTQ+ stories from your concerts.
7. After the tour is over and we have (hopefully!) gotten lots and lots of submissions, we will edit it together into one video, showing the One Direction fandom in all of it’s rainbow colours.
If you have any questions/suggestions/comments or if you want to help out in any way, please use the ask at takemehomefromnarnia.tumblr.com: Ellis, Linda, Grace or Kat will be happy to answer your questions.
PLEASE REBLOG AND SPREAD THE WORD! The more people who know about this, the bigger the impact we can have by making the One Direction fandom a safe and welcoming place for all LGBTQ+ fans.
