This June marks OutRight Action International’s third Pride With A Purpose campaign. This campaign represents an opportunity to commemorate the history of Pride, and celebrate all the progress we’ve made in the recognition of the rights of LGBTIQ people, while also highlighting the immense challenges that still face people all around the world.
Daz 3D is proud to support OutRight Action International. On behalf of Daz 3D and the entire Non-Fungible People community, our debut NFT collection of 8,888 female, female-identifying, and non-binary avatars, we are proud to make a donation to show our support for this important organization.
OutRight’s Important Work
Pride is one of the most visible symbols of the LGBTIQ movement for equality. OutRight Action International is dedicated to not only celebrating progress, but also affirming the existence of LGBTIQ people around the world, and recognition of their basic rights.
All around the world, the LGBTIQ+ movement has been growing and leading to amazing breakthroughs that benefit the lives and rights of countless people. For example, at least 15 countries have decriminalized homosexuality in the last ten years, and since 2001, 30 countries have codified marriage equality at the national level, the majority since 2015.
Organizations like OutRight and its local partners in dozens of countries around the world are stepping up and giving voice to community members who are targeted by acts of discrimination and violence. While there are many victories to celebrate, there is still a lot of work to do.
OutRight and Web3
OutRight has already done some amazing work through their web3 partnerships. In fact, NFTs and crypto philanthropy are helping fuel their vision of radically accelerating social and legal change for LGBTIQ people worldwide.
They’ve partnered with some amazing collections and crypto platforms like The Giving Block and Endaoment, which allow charitable donations of cryptocurrency. They’ve also collaborated with a number of projects, communities, and artists, including Not Your Bro, UkraineDAO, RELI3F, HUG, Hackatao, Art Blocks, and more.
Daz 3D and NFP are proud to join this lineup of amazing projects in lending support to OutRight Action International.

We can only keep moving forward to secure freedom and equality for all LGBTIQ people by working with partners who believe in these goals and are willing to join us.
