Rainbow Railroad has had a breakout year. The Toronto-based organization which helps LGBT refugees get to safe countries has been ramping up its operations and finding new sources for funding. In 2015 Rainbow Railroad was able to provide $125,000 in emergency travel assistance that helped 29 people reach safety, according to executive director Justin Taylor. It also assisted 48 additional people, who didn’t require funding, reach safety.
