It’s here, it’s queer and it’s the biggest party of the year – it’s Pride 2015! Just when you thought London couldn’t get any more fabulous it feels like the whole city is camping up for the weekend celebrations. Let’s take a look at how some of London’s most well known sights have been showing their support.
Usually it’s the London eye that dominates the skyline with its rainbow colour display over the pride weekend, but this year it’ll have some competition. For the first time ever the giant Wembley arch will be lit up with the iconic rainbow colours.
You may have seen a few of these around town already; the iconic black cab has been given a bit of a colourful spruce up and is set to add to an already very colourful looking public transport network…
…because even the buses are getting involved. Does anyone else think this should be a permanent colour theme?
Perhaps the most audacious transformation on this list, this DLR train has been transformed into a ‘trainbow’ and is making sure to advertise Pride 2015 as loudly as possible.
You might not recognise this one at first, but this is the science museum doing it’s bit to show some support.
And just across the road another one of London’s amazing museums, the V&A, is doing the same. To have these intellectual institutions show their support is, well, fabulous!
This is my favourite. 15 Tesco stores have had some slight modifications in the lead up to this weekend’s pride celebrations. Subtle but effective, nice one.
This is the most important symbolic gesture on this list. The building flying this rainbow flag is the home office, just think how lucky are we to live in a country where government buildings show this symbol, and with no backlash from the public.
If all these rainbows are getting you in the mood to party, check out the official London Pride 2015 website and find out where you can join in the festivities. Remember, everyone is invited!
