Umbrellas of Love!

My name is Vince Laws, I'm a poet, artist and campaigner. I want to protest the homophobia throughout the Commonwealth during the Gaymes in Glasgow from July 23-August 3, 2014. There are 53 nations in the Commonwealth. 41 nations criminalised adult same-sex behaviour. 7 Commonwealth nations stipulate life imprisonment. 2 have Sharia law in certain regions - Pakistan and Nigeria - where the maximum penalty is execution. I want to get 41 white umbrellas, and paint the names of the offending countries on them, in blood red, and hopefully get 41 people to carry them in Norwich Pride parade on July 26. It's going to cost about £5 per umbrella. To help, you could send me send a fiver, a tenner, what you can afford. If I get enough money I'll do all 86 countries where it's illegal to be human, plus extras with slogans like 'Love is a Human right', 'We all bleed red', 'No human is illegal' etc. My hope is to get 100 umbrellas, maximum, which I can take to other events, display, lend out, etc. Any ideas, offers of help, welcome.
