Paint the whole world with a rainbow!... Well, if not the world, at least Birmingham’s Southside district, which incorporates the city’s gay village.


After the recent unveiling of the Hurst Street rainbow crossing, a rainbow walk has now been added at the Arcadian Centre.

Local drag favourite James Gavina Cowper, who was instrumental in creating the crossing, posted on Facebook: “Did another one!! Because why not!”


And the new rainbow walk has certainly gone down well with the community. Positive comments posted on social media included “Amazing work again”, “this is lovely”, “brilliant” and “do more!”.

Gary Jones posted: “Perhaps one should be painted at the Alexandra Stadium as part of the Commonwealth Games! Considering there are still 53 countries in the Commonwealth where being gay is still illegal & punishment is death, life imprisonment & torture in some of the countries.”


Pete Ekemba said: “And I love that the black and brown are included and the trans colours too! Sooo refreshing."

The Loft Lounge posted: “Why stop at one when you can have two LGBTQ+ Progress flags in the heart of the Birmingham gay village! James Gavina Cowper and the brilliant Southside, Birmingham team are adding another colourful piece of progress on the approach to Hurst Street from The Arcadian! We love it! Keep up the amazing work!”
