Rainbow Division

Rainbow Division is an art project protesting Trump's ban on Transgender soldiers.

The “Rainbow Division” co-opts a name given to the 42nd Infantry Division by Douglas MacArthur in 1917 as the US entered WW1. The soldiers were the first to head to Europe. In Douglas MacArthur's words the Rainbow Division would "stretch over the whole country like a rainbow."

 Rainbow Division is a trop of 100 or more toy soldier parachuters, repainted in the colours of the rainbow. At a specific time and place, all parachuters will be released over the city or bridge to create a rainbow.

 The project has the potential to involve possibly more with community involvement, social media promotion and connection to other events and organisations.
