Actors from the Silver Rainbow resource video - see it below. The Rule Foundation has given out just over $54,000 in grants to a range of lgbti community initiatives in the 2013/14 year. The charity is designed to advance the health, wellbeing and visibility of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex people in New Zealand. Its biggest donation of $18,000 was to Silver Rainbow, a project which has developed and published an education resource for caregivers of lgbti people in rest homes. The Foundation has put a total of $54,500 into the initiative over three years. Rainbow Youth was granted $8,000 to support youth group organisers in Whangarei, Tauranga, Hamilton, Rotorua, New Plymouth, and Hawke’s Bay, while Reel Queer received $5,500 for the 2014 Out Takes Film Festival - especially its reintroduction to Christchurch. Other recipients include Auckland Women’s Centre for its monthly queer women’s get-together, a gay-themed short film and a trans-themed short, Gay Line Wellington and Schools Out, Intersex Awareness NZ, the Otago University Students Association Queer Support and OUTLine NZ. The Foundation’s funding comes from the interest earned on its $1.6m capital base. People can also donate to the Foundation through regular direct credit and via the givealittle website.
