Permanent rainbow crossing is unveiled in London


For the first time, a permanent rainbow crossing is to be installed on the street of the UK capital. The crossing – which is actually four separate rainbow crossings, across four lanes of major roads – has been unveiled in Lambeth, a south London borough, and was officially opened on Friday, August 16. Councilor Sonia Winifred, Lambeth cabinet member for Equalities and Culture, said that this gesture is very symbolic to show how inclusive the whole city is and to confirm the welcoming reputation of that particular district. She noted that they are proud of their queer citizens and of the progress they have reached. The Mayor of Lambeth, councilor Ibrahim Dogus, said: “Lambeth’s diversity has always been our strength, and we have never been afraid to show it! This crossing is a symbol of the pride we have in our flourishing LGBT+ community and will light up Herne Hill with its message of inclusivity”
