'Rainbow Road' created in Nottingham for Pride

A 'Rainbow Road' has been created in the centre of Nottingham to mark this year's Pride celebrations in the city.

Four parts of Broad Street have been painted with multicolour rainbow stripes to show the city's commitment to the LGBT+ community.

The 'Rainbow Road' will be the finishing point for this year's Pride parade on Saturday 27 July.

The Council House will also be lit up in rainbow colours from today until the Pride event.

Nottinghamshire Pride is the annual LGBT+ celebration, which includes a parade through the city centre followed by music and speeches in Old Market Square.

A Rainbow Road is a really visible way of showing our commitment to supporting the LGBT+ community and I'm looking forward to seeing it realised in Hockley.

The newly pedestrianised Broad Street provides the perfect setting. Local people have told us they want to see more street art in the area to help create a sense of place and identity - so it's really exciting to see the Rainbow Road in situ to celebrate Pride.

– Cllr David Mellen, Leader of Nottingham City Council
