A stunning rainbow has landed in Wimbledon to celebrate the town’s inclusivity, welcoming its first LGBT+ bar, and support for this year’s Pride in London events.
Merton council has installed a Rainbow Crossing in Wimbledon Broadway by the recently-opened CMYK bar.
The multi-coloured crossing has been created in the design of the Rainbow Flag – which has been adopted, across the globe, as a symbol to celebrate the LGBT+ community and its diversity.
The month-long Pride in London event, which starts tomorrow, will bring a host of cultural treats to venues across the capital.
The festival aims to celebrate the creativity of the LGBT+ community, challenge prejudice and campaign for equal rights for members both at home and abroad.
