These new LGBT pedestrian crossing symbols will make you proud

Manchester’s crosswalks just got a little bit more queer.

The city’s Pride festival is this coming weekend, and as part of the celebration, the city installed new symbols on some of the pedestrian crossing signals in the downtown area.

The signals were manufactured by Seimens UK.

“It’s great to see Siemens stepping out in support of LGBT+ people,” said Mark Fletcher of Manchester Pride.
