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.

Replacing the little green stick figure in 34 pedestrian crossing signals will be one of four designs: two male symbols, two female symbols, a male and a female symbol, and a transgender symbol.

We are proud, in conjunction with our traffic signals contractor Siemens, to transform some of the traffic lights around the Gay Village for Pride,” said Bob Morris of Transport for Greater Manchester. “Hopefully they’ll give visitors and residents a special welcome as they enjoy the festivities over the Big Weekend.”

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.
