Forbidden Colours collects and raises funds to support initiatives that help LGBTIQ+ people to fully live their lives in freedom with self-respect and dignity in Europe. We are also a leading advocate in exposing anti-LGBTIQ+ initiatives in Europe, and therefore conduct extensive advocacy with media, EU-institutions and member states.

Forbidden Colours is a NPO linked to a fund managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, the major Belgian public benefit foundation, whose mission it is to contribute to a better society.

We support concrete initiatives selected through calls for projects or specific and urgent requests from recognised and active organisations in the field.

Organisations wishing to receive our funding will be requested to report to the King Baudouin Foundation on the relevance of their project and the actual use of donations in accordance with the purpose of Forbidden Colours.

We guarantee a fair use of donations.
