West End shows its colours for Orlando

Published 14 June 2016

Following the attack on an LGBT nightclub in Orlando on Saturday, vigils have been held around the world, with the distinctive rainbow colours lighting up buildings, bridges and billboards. London theatre was no exception, with many of the city’s iconic venues hanging the pride flag in solidarity with the Orlando LGBT community. 

 

Pride and Joyce From 10-26 June, we’ll be flying the rainbow flag on the front of the building as part of the annual Pride celebrations in London, honouring the many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people who have helped make the Royal Opera House the institution it is today, both on and off stage. @joycedidonato shared her support by taking a photo with the flag earlier today. #lgbt #pride #lovewins #love #pride2016 #nofilter #byyourside #loveislove #ally #opera #royaloperahouse #coventgarden #rainbow #rainbowflag
