"The Rainbow Coffee is a collaboration between LLH (The Norwegian LGBT Organisation), coffee roaster Solberg & Hansen and Anti in support of LLH´s Principle 6 campaign. The campaign is launched in connection with the winter Olympics in Russia and aims to raise awareness of the injustice and discrimination the gay community face in Russia.

Our design  is based on the rainbow flag, which is a common symbol in the gay community. The colours of the rainbow are blending together, a symbol of how differences between people matter less and how far we´ve come in many parts of the world when it comes to equality. Still, the flag is torn and damaged, a symbol of the ongoing battle for basic human rights. “
