London Now Has a Gay Bus

By Gary Cutlack on at

Transport for London has painted up one of its fleet of buses in rainbow colours, to celebrate all the many and various ways the people of the capital do their sex.

The bus, one of the modern hybrid Routemasters which will travel route 8 between Bow Church and Tottenham Court Road for the next year, was commissioned to celebrate the 10th anniversary of TfL's LGBT staff network.

Stagecoach MD Mark Threapleton, whose company operates the route, said: "This will be a travelling advertisement, spreading the message of diversity to the hearts of our communities and to visitors from across the world. We look forward to the bus raising a smile and awareness wherever it goes." [MayorWatch]
