Norwegian singer-songwriter Girl In Red has painted a one-of-a-kind guitar in association with Fender to support LGBTQ+ rights.
The Rainbow-finished Player Series Telecaster is dubbed the Pride guitar, and will be raffled off to raise money for the Kaleidoscope Trust, a global NPO which campaigns for the human rights of LGBTQ+ people around the globe.
Along with this, Fender have added a three month subscription to their Fender Play service to the prize pot. Raffle entries begin at £5 apiece, and the contest period wraps up on the midnight of 2 August.
Speaking about her collaboration with Fender, Girl In Red said in a statement that as a “privileged” queer person, she felt the importance of being “as loud as possible.”
“Music can create an incredible and safe space for those who need it the most,” she said. “This feels like an authentic way I can help others in the community.”
“My first electric guitar was a Fender and the rainbow flag is such an iconic and positive design that I hope everybody loves this guitar as much as I do. What’s better than raising money for an amazing cause and helping somebody to pursue their music dreams at the same time?!”
