Rainbow Plaques Launched

Leeds Civic Trust has recently been working with Leeds City Council to create a special ‘Rainbow Plaques’ trail throughout Leeds city centre this summer.  To celebrate Pride, we will be erecting a series of temporary Rainbow Plaques that will mark people, places and events that have shaped the City's LGBT+ story. Based on the ‘Love Lives Here’ plaques trail in London, the Rainbow Plaques will celebrate well know and not so well know people, places and events significant to the LGBT+ community. 

From Angela Morley to Nicola Adams; Leeds Town Hall to Lower Briggate, Leeds has much to commemorate, contemplate and celebrate.

Maps will be produced and will be available in One Stop Shops, Council buildings and local cafes and pubs. 

We are also asking the public to nominate who, what or where they think should have a Rainbow Plaque. Click here to find out more and to nominate your Rainbow Plaque.
