Pride in London 2019 – new Bi Pride roundel unveiled in Tube stations across London for the first time – and Links Signs are making it happen.

“The Pride roundels, celebrating LGBT+ Londoners of all races, backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities, will show visitors from across the world that everyone is welcome here and London is truly open to all.”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan

Rainbow Pride roundel updated to represent BAME LGBT+ community

The Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) celebrate Pride this year with a trio of inclusive roundels ahead of Pride in London on Saturday 6 July. For the first time ever, the Bi Pride roundel can be seen across the transport network alongside the now iconic colours of the Rainbow and Trans Pride flags to celebrate the LGBT+ community.

To reflect the diversity of sexualities and gender identities, the ever-popular rainbow roundel returns with additional black and brown stripes to mark the representation of the BAME LGBT+ community. The new Bi Pride roundel uses the pink and purple colours of the Bisexual Pride flag, and the light blue and pink stripes of the Trans Pride flag represent the transgender community.  All three roundels will carry the hashtag #EveryStoryMatters.

Tube station posters will feature photographs of TfL staff and partners, encouraging people to be proud of who they are and showing their support for the LGBT+ community. Sadiq Khan, The Mayor of London, said:

“London is a place where you can be who you want to be and love who you want to love. The Pride roundels, celebrating LGBT+ Londoners of all races, backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities, will show visitors from across the world that everyone is welcome here and London is truly open to all. I know this year’s Pride will be another bold and vibrant celebration of London’s LGBT+ community which plays such an important role in shaping the culture of our city.”

Representatives speaking on behalf of Transport for London and Arriva Rail London added their own enthusiastic endorsement of their involvement in this year’s Pride in London:

“TfL has always been a strong supporter of Pride in London, the LGBT+ community, and everyone who lives in our vibrant and diverse city. We welcome all communities and London is open for all to enjoy – whether you’re here to work, study or just enjoy London.”

Staynton Brown, Director of Diversity, Inclusion & Talent – TfL

“We’re proud to stand alongside Transport for London to celebrate and support the LGBT+ community in our workforce and in the diverse neighbourhoods that we connect across the City. We will be flying the Pride flag at Haggerston, Camden Road and West Croydon with specially designed roundels and posters; ensuring that everyone taking a journey on the London Overground will receive a warm welcome from our teams, at every station, on every train.”

Oli Gant, HR Director – Arriva Rail London

 LGBT+ charity Galop summed-up the involvement in this year’s Pride in London by Transport for London and its partners, by saying:

“Coming together to celebrate London’s diversity and to speak up against hate has never been more important. We commend TfL for their continued solidarity with LGBT+ communities at Pride and their goal of challenging homophobia, and transphobia on public transport.”

Nick Antjoule, Head of Hate Crime Services – Galop
