Core Values and Principles

My Rainbow Network celebrates diversity and equality; in all aspects of life!

Addressing the social and cultural gaps, left behind by fake news and mainstream conjecture. Our purpose is to promote leaders, places, education and resources, so the rainbow community can reach their full potential.

My Rainbow Network began in Feb 2016 as an LGBTIQ+ multimedia network, streamlining news and current affairs out to underserviced youth. My Rainbow Network aim is to promote the principles and values of a more productive society.

Rainbow Manifesto

Below reflects the values and principles that we believe are vital to support diversity and inclusion in society for LGBT+ people.

Our goal is to lock stigma, exclusion, discrimination and judgment in the closet. We imagine an inclusive future for all youth, similarly, we imagine a world where The Rainbow Community have the exact same access to social services and job opportunities.

We imagine a world where individuals with fluid sexual orientations are seen as normal.

We imagine a world free of physical violence and abuse against The Rainbow Community, where a same-sex couple is equal to a heterosexual relationship.

We imagine a world where ambiguity and confusion about sexual orientation and gender diversity is tolerated; where teenagers who are uncertain about their sexual orientation are safe from harassment and exclusion.

We imagine a world where information about queer and alternative minority groups is easily accessible, and not left to conjecture. Ensuring media is communicated and transmitted to children and parents, in a way that demonstrates awareness and sensitivity.

We believe that a queer vision involves LGBT people being free from additional requirements to document their relationship or gender. All humans, should be able to select from a range of commitment options including marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships, depending on their individual belief and situation.

In reference to privacy, we believe that The Rainbow Community, like heterosexuals, should have privacy, to disclose or not disclose their gender and sexual orientation.

We apply all these principles to our platform as a guide to celebrating diversity and equality in the community, ensuring LGBTIQ+ people have enough psychological space to operate in comfortably and constructively.

Personal values, principles and beliefs

Ethical decision-making and ethical behaviour involve being prepared to take account of the wellbeing of others. In other words, they require making decisions based on values and standards that go beyond self-interest.

Here are some values/principles that underpin ethical thinking and decision-making.

Individualisation

Each person has the right to be an individual and not need to conform to another’s expectations.

Acceptance

Accept each person as they are. This includes their lifestyle, culture, colour of skin, religious belief, style of dress, where they live, income, etc.

Self-determination

Each person has the right to make their own choices and decisions and do things their way.

Confidentiality

People have a right to their privacy and to know that all information about them is kept confidential unless they approve of the information being shared with others.

Respect

Each person has a right to be respected for who they are and not for what others want them to be. This means that young people in detention and supported accommodation need to be treated with as much respect as any other member of the public.

Expression

People have the right to express themselves in a way that suits them (including sexual preference, dress, creativity, religious beliefs, etc.), as long as that expression is not hurting someone else.

Safety

People have the right to a safe and comfortable environment and to feel safe when they are with others in public.

Other values and principles

Many other values and principles could be added to this list, such as:

  • how things should be in the world
  • how people should act in certain circumstances
  • how the important aspects of life are handled (e.g. money, family, relationships, power, male and female roles, etc.)

  • The right to the universal enjoyment of human rights

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.
