London Underground pays tribute to the LGBT community

The London Transport Authority has decided to pay tribute to the entire LGBT community by installing 10 new Rainbow symbols.

A move that is not new, in fact, there has been no shortage of public displays of homage to the LGBT+ community by the London Transport Company. Now these 10 new symbols will join the other installations.

The author of these new logos, Amy Lame, released a statement: ”When I first arrived in London I was fully aware that I was following in the footsteps of my LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters and regularly took the tube and bus to visit places related to them. I was really honoured to be asked to create a logo, my Oscar Wilde design aims to encapsulate London’s rich LGBTQ+ history and show a path to the future. As more and more people return to public transport, it’s really special that ten Pride roundels will be displayed across the network, clearly showing that in London you can be who you want to be and love who you want to love”.

A very important celebration as reported by the Director of Diversity Inclusion & Talent – Transport for London: ”This year at TfL, to underline our continued commitment and support, we have installed roundels specially designed by leading figures and personalities from London’s LGBTQ+ community. We have transformed our stations and platforms into a place for positive messages of hope, love, compassion and unity that encourage important conversations about issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community, as we see more people returning to the public transport network to enjoy what London has to offer”.
