It’s one of our favorite times of the year at The Points Guy — Pride Month! Diversity and inclusion are a core part of the TPG brand, and we always go out of our way during June to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community. There are some incredible prizes this year, too.

For more TPG news delivered each morning to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter.

For years, TPG has partnered with Rainbow Railroad to rescue LGBTQIA+ individuals, and we are doubling down on those efforts this year. Rainbow Railroad is a nonprofit organization that helps LGBTQIA+ people escape persecution and violence in their home countries and get to safety.

“Rainbow Railroad is there to cut through all the red tape that prevents LGBTQIA+ people from getting life-saving support. That’s why the work supported by TPG is so crucial,” said Kimahli Powell, executive director of Rainbow Railroad. He said the organization was creating pathways to safety.

Rainbow Railroad has given direct assistance or provided travel for some 3,900 individuals.

We’ll have more details soon, but Chase Sapphire is donating a grand prize of 1 million Chase Ultimate Reward points to one lucky winner!

That’s not the only amazing thing on offer.

The excursion booking site Elsewhere (owned by TPG’s parent company, Red Ventures) will donate a safari trip to South Africa as one of several flash sweepstakes prizes. Stay tuned for more details.

In 2021, we raised over $200,000 for Rainbow Railroad. Over the years, TPG has provided enough funds to support at least 100 LGBTQIA+ people, which means that together we’ve saved over 100 lives.

TPG will hold several live events as well, including:

  • A Twitter Space discussing LGBTQIA+ travel tips and under-the-radar destinations.
  • A Twitter Space with Brian Kelly and a celebrity co-host to discuss LGBTQIA+ travel.
  • A live event in Toronto from the Rainbow Railroad Freedom Series with a party you can attend in Toronto.
