Green Park's #Pride posters

Its #Pride time again and this year TfL is celebrating with a corridor of posters at Green Park tube station. Its also doing smaller celebrations at other tube stations with the style of colourful roundels that have a been a feature of #pride each year. There are a total of forty posters (with a pair of the establishing poster as depicted below at either end of the linking tunnel.)

Poster displayed at both ends of the long interconnecting corridor.

The following TfL tweet details the locations of this year’s roundel #Pride displays and as always a number of stations are chosen for displays of the colourful roundels and an unusual addition this year – Vauxhall bus station (not garage because there isn’t one!)

The following image is simply an enlargement of the text on the image above. This text (and the poster itself) are placed at both ends of the Green Park interchange tunnel so people have an opportunity to learn what the 20 other posters on either side of the tunnel walls are about.

TfL’s statement on #Pride.

Those posters at Victoria was more about the role of women on transport and the need for equality and recognition. This at Green Park is similar but its more specifically focused on the staff’s individuality and their sense of authenticity as employees of TfL. There were just five posters depicting ethnic staff so I have included all of them.

A handful of the posters were of people not specifically TfL staff but the sponsors involved in this particular endeavour.

Pride is the feeling of self-esteem and confidence that comes from being comfortable about who you are.

Loving a woman doesn’t change who I am or how I do my job.

Not everyone can handle me and that is okay. They will adjust and I will continue to sleep at night completely #unbothered.

Although everyone is different, it is really about celebrating those differences and realising that we can learn so much from them!
