Leeds Civic Trust,
The Rainbow Plaque Trail

An estimated 77,000 people identifying as LGBT+ live in Leeds, and the city has celebrated this hosting Pride festival each year for over 12 years.

In 2018 Leeds Civic Trust and Leeds LGBT+ HUB worked together to develop a Rainbow Plaque Trail; a series of plaques visible throughout the city during Pride, celebrating and highlighting the history, events & people that have influenced Leeds' LGBT+ heritage.

Tom Dick & Harry designed the plaques along with a fully illustrated fold-out guide that was distributed city-wide in print and online.

 #RainbowPlaques aim to make LGBT+ heritage, achievements and stories visible.
