A “rainbow road crossing” has been unveiled in Tower Hamlets and Hackney celebration of Pride month.
The colourful markings were painted in Hackney Road on the border of the two boroughs.
Mayor John Biggs and Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville unveiled the crossing.
Mr Biggs said: “It was great to join Mayor Glanville, alongside members of staff, the community and councillors from both our great boroughs to celebrate the installation of the special Pride crossing.
“The crossing will provide a colourful and powerful reminder of the importance of Pride and of demonstrating our ongoing friendship and solidarity with our LGBT+ friends and neighbours.”
Tower Hamlets council has also teamed up with East London Out Project (ELOP) – an LGBT+ support organisation – to provide several free events during Pride month.
These include the Pride Picnic in the Park on 30 June from 14:00 to 18:00 in Victoria Park and a Pride film screening on 20 July at 20:00 in Poplar Union.
