One of the Reykjavik schools celebrates the Pride with rainbow stairs


The rainbow staircase (, the steps to one of the city’s oldest institutions, Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík school) appeared in the center of the city to celebrate the Pride Parade which is held there this month. Mayor Dagur B Eggertsson said: “It’s amazing something as everyday as the colours of the rainbow can be a symbol for human rights and freedom. And it’s especially beautiful that young and old people joined together to paint it.” He added to the Icelandic Monitor: “For me, the significance of this is to underline that Reykjavik is a city of human rights and a city for everybody, where all colours can flourish. I am very proud to be Mayor of such a city.”
