London is to follow in the pedestrian footsteps of Tel Aviv and Sydney with its first rainbow crossing for Pride at the end of this month.
Pioneered in the Israeli beach city, the idea of rainbow crossings has now started to spread around the world.
London’s first will be at the junction of Pall Mall East and Suffolk Street, where the Pride in London parade will pass on 28 June.
But it will only last for the day.
The city is also giving 75 of its pay-as-you-go Barclay’s Cycle Hire bikes a ‘Ride with Pride’ logo during Pride week.
