Colourful zebras: University of Nottingham goes crossings crazy for LGBT History Month
News
Posted on 11 Feb 2020

The University of Nottingham has unveiled rainbow 'zebra' crossings at its three UK campuses.


The crossings have been installed to celebrate LGBT history month and feature the colours used in the Pride flag, along with the addition of black and brown stripes to recognise the relationship between the LGBT+ and black and multi-ethnic (BME) communities.

Commenting, Professor Sarah Sharples, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at the university, said: “Our Nottingham campuses are a key part of the experience of being a University of Nottingham student or staff member.


"I know that for me, when I see them, the crossings will remind me of the university’s support for our LGBTQ+ students and staff, and our commitment towards equality, diversity and inclusion which will make the university better for us all.”
