Transport for the UK capital unveiled its specially-designed rainbow bus in 2015, decorated with an iconic rainbow flag design and a ‘Ride with Pride’ slogan. The idea gained so big popularity that instantly spread out of London and one more rainbow bus was designed in Brighton.
Two buses were together this week as part of an event which saw them visit eachother’s respective cities. A number of drag performers were on board as the buses toured the local landmarks, from St Paul’s Cathedral to the Houses of Parliament.
Martyn Loukes BEM, Chair of Transport for London’s LGBT+ Network OUTbound, said: “It was great to see the rainbow bus off on its journey to Brighton today to mark the countdown to Pride in London 2016. We created our award winning #RidewithPride campaign last year to celebrate LGBT diversity at TfL and within the Capital as a whole. Since then, we’ve seen a bus, taxi and DLR train wrapped in rainbow livery.” The bus will take part in the Pride in London parade on June 25, with bus driver Danny Dudziec driving it through the parade.
