A new rainbow coloured crossing has been laid across Camden High Street to celebrate Pride. The first of its type in Camden, it it can be found at the junction of Hawley Crescent and Jamestown Road.
Cllr Adam Harrison, Camden Council’s environment chief, said: “Whether it’s the establishment of Gay’s The Word bookshop on Marchmont Street, or even the very first performance of Lily Savage taking at the Black Cap on Camden High Street, LGBT+ people have long contributed to the life of the borough here in Camden, fighting for equality and progress against the forces of discrimination.”
“This is Camden’s first rainbow crossing, and is a symbol of celebration and pride in this history and in Camden’s diverse communities.”
Due to the cancellation of Pride events during the coronavirus pandemic, Camden moved to online celebrations around the theme of ‘We Make Camden Proud’.
