What is Under One Rainbow?

by Brighton Council
The colour run

Under One Rainbow was formed in 2013 to offer support to LGBTIQA+ community, family and friends. Under One Rainbow also has the Brighton Suicide Prevention Community Plan under its umbrella.

Mother and son team, Sonya and Michael Williams, are the founders of the group. Sonya, the self-described “unofficial grandma to the group”, explained that they were motivated to start Under One Rainbow in Gagebrook following a homophobic attack on a young boy. “The community decided that was not what they wanted to see in their community,” said Sonya. The name was chosen because of its inclusive nature. “A rainbow doesn’t discriminate based on race, religion or sexuality,” she added.

Run by a team of volunteers, all members have an equal say in suggesting and organising events.

The 2024 events calendar is filling up with lots of fun community get togethers, including the Pride Colour Run being held on Saturday 17 February (see the news story in this edition for more information).

To follow what’s happening with Under One Rainbow, follow their Facebook page and come along to their events. It’s hard to miss the group’s members as they all wear colourful Under One Rainbow tops, so go say hi!
