TfL is sharing celebrity LGBTQ+ stories in honour of Pride month.
Great! Tell me more.
TfL has partnered with personalities including Bimini, Gok Wan, Nick Grimshaw and Queen MoJo to celebrate LGBTQ+ stories this Pride month. They have decorated a London Overground train, an Elizabeth line train, a double-decker bus and an engineering train in Pride glory.
Why are they doing this?
This is all part of TfL’s #EveryStoryMatters campaign, celebrating diversity and all the different kinds of people who live in London. London celebrates its own Pride parade at the end of Pride month, on 1 July this year.
