Corby Spirit and Wine : Canadian drag superstar Scarlett Bobo supporting Rainbow Railroad as a patron and ambassador, bringing inclusivity in drag to centre stage and helping LGBTQI+ people around the world escape violence

06/24/2021 | 09:01am EST

Founder of the Absolut Empire's Ball inspires a $40,000 donation by Absolut to Rainbow Railroad in celebration.

TORONTO, June 24, 2021 /CNW/ - Rainbow Railroad, a charitable organization that helps LGBTQI+ people around the world escape violence is proud to have Canadian drag superstar Scarlett Bobo as an international ambassador. Scarlett Bobo has been a long-time advocate for inclusivity in drag, founding the Absolut Empire's Ball, a drag competition that encourages all gender identities and performance styles to participate in the spirit of diversity and inclusivity. In honour of this announcement, Absolut has donated $40,000 to Rainbow Railroad in Scarlett's name – enough to support three LGBTQI people in dangerous situations around the world escape from persecution.

"It is the biggest honour in my career to be accepted by Rainbow Railroad as an international ambassador," said Scarlett. "Being able to do something life changing for someone else is incredible. Having known something I created has changed the lives of three human beings, and my work with the organization going forward can save even more, is the most rewarding thing I've ever done."

Aoife O'Reilly, Senior Brand Manager for Absolut in Canada said, "We have worked with Scarlett for many years, and their commitment to creating inclusive and open spaces for everyone within the LGBTQI community is something we have always respected, admired and supported. We are delighted to celebrate their appointment as an ambassador for Rainbow Railroad with this donation and look forward to seeing the impact they have on the incredibly important work Rainbow Railroad is doing."

"Drag queens were some of the earliest supporters of Rainbow Railroad, and Scarlett BoBo has been at the top of the list. Since the first time I saw Scarlett, perform, I knew they were a star, and we're honoured that Scarlett has leveraged their platform to raise awareness and funds for Rainbow Railroad. Scarlett's support of Rainbow Railroad has helped LGBTQI people escape persecution and violence - saving lives in the process." Said Kimahli Powell, Executive Director of Rainbow Railroad.

With an international platform, Scarlett will be able to bring their advocacy to a whole new level, sharing their passion for living authentically and celebrating all that drag can be to the world… and, of course, looking great while doing it.
