The guitar is set to be auctioned off in a raffle in order to raise money for the Kalaeidoscope Trust, which aims to protect the human rights of LGBTQ+ folx living in countries that have strict laws about sexuality. The electric Fender Player Series guitar has the rainbow Pride flag.
“As a privileged queer person, I feel it is important that I am as loud as possible. Music can create an incredible and safe space for those who need it the most and this feels like an authentic way I can help others in the community,” Girl In Red explains. “My first electric guitar was a Fender and the rainbow flag is such an iconic and positive design that I hope everybody loves this guitar as much as I do.”
Entries for the raffle start at £5 and it finishes at midnight on August 2nd.
