In recognition of pride, Rainbow Kitten Surprise has teamed up with PLUS1 as a founding partner of their LGBTQ+ Equality Fund. Officially launching today, the fund will support grassroots organizations Appalachian Outreach and Tennessee Equality, both of which help support LGBTQ+ youth in the South.
To kick off the fund, the band has launched a special wardrobe auction, putting up stage looks previously worn during their high-energy live shows. All proceeds will go towards the Equality Fund. Fans can learn more about the stories behind each auction item and bid on their favorites HERE. The auction will run through June 15th with over 30 unique items to bid on.
The band has also launched an exclusive RKS Pride t-shirt, with all proceeds also going towards the newly formed fund. The shirt can be purchased HERE.
Today’s announcement continues a longstanding partnership with PLUS1 and Rainbow Kitten Surprise dating back to 2019 whereby $1 of every ticket sold on the band’s headline shows is directed towards charitable organizations. On their most recent run of tour dates, funds have been directed towards local food banks working to fight hunger and food insecurity in their communities. The band is expected to direct over $25,000 towards these organizations on this year’s touring alone.
