Rainbow crossing shows LGBT fight continues

19 September 2016

A pedestrian crossing outside the United Nations which has been painted in the rainbow colours associated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender or LGBT movement is a reminder to world leaders that the fight for equality continues.

That’s according to a senior UN official.

The rainbow crosswalk is an initiative of the US, as host country and other like-minded Member States of the UN.

On Wednesday global leaders will meet at the UN to discuss progress towards LGBT equality.
